Two Dallas police officers and a civilian have been shot near The Home Depot in northeast Dallas, police confirm.

NBC DFW issued one report that said one of the officers had died. However, they now report the following:

Earlier in the day, multiple sources told NBC DFW that one of the officers had died, but during a news conference Tuesday evening, Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said she would not release the conditions of those shot —  therefore NBC DFW will await official confirmation on the officers’ conditions.

The article goes on to state the following:

One person was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, according to a hospital spokesperson. Further information was not provided.

The civilian’s condition is not known at this time.

Following the shooting, officers began circulating a photo of a person they’d like to question.

NBCDFW reports:

Officers are currently searching for the shooter. A source told NBC DFW law enforcement is circulating a photo of 29-year-old Armando Juarez. He’s not a suspect at this time, but officers want to talk to about the shooting. The photo is a mugshot from January when he was arrested for unlawful use of a vehicle.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent out statements on Twitter after the shooting.

Abbot wrote: Our thoughts and prayers are with @DallasPD and the two officers shot and critically wounded. Texas honors all the men and women who protect and serve our communities, and justice will be served.

Rawlings wrote: We are closely monitoring the situation in northeast Dallas and praying for our officers and their families.
