  • Reports: Officer-involved shooting closes Parks Mall in Arlington

Arlington police are investigating after an officer-involved shooting Sunday evening inside The Parks Mall at Arlington. Cook said if police can arrest the suspect on a later date, they prefer not to put the driving public at risk.

Authorities say this is not an active shooter incident and the situation is under control.

- A shoplifting suspect took several bullets on the escalator to the food court at Parks Mall in Arlington. Follow instructions from First Responders if inside the mall.

During a press conference Monday afternoon at police headquarters, police spokesman Lt. Christopher Cook said police encountered Dodd at about 2 p.m. on Friday. He did note that Dodd had been charged with filing a false police report in September after reporting to police he had been shot in a drive-by shooting.

An hour before the theft incident, Arlington 911 received a call from someone claiming to be William Dodd.

"Officers can not make a distinction between the two, especially.in a split second decision", he said.

Cook said the police are working with the District Attorney's office to file the appropriate charges against Dodd.

On the second call returned to Dodd, the operator tried to get identifying information from him but Dodd had changed his mind and refused to turn himself in.

The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police didn't pursue him in that case since they recognized Dodd after running his license plate number.

The male suspect was thought to have been stealing sunglasses at the mall in Arlington, Texas, when an officer opened fire, believing the replica gun to be real. Police have not been able to interview him due to his condition.

"You can not ever distinguish between a real or an imitation firearm".
