DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Police are reviewing some of their procedures after an officer was shot Monday night trying to serve a warrant. The officer has been released from the hospital, but the shooter is still on the loose.
DPD says it is constantly evaluating its warrant tactics, and police confirm there are several internal investigations underway because an officer was wounded. Part of the investigation will address procedures and personnel used to serve the warrant.
The department says every aspect of the operation will be reviewed, including warrant procedures. However, the department says there doesn’t seem to be a procedure problem. Instead it’s a case of bad guys doing bad things.
“We got really lucky,” says DPD Police Chief David Brown. “Much of what we do as police officers is confront danger, confront criminals to make this city safe. Our officers are willing to out their life on the line.”
The undercover narcotics officer was grazed in the buttocks while serving a warrant at a home on Fernwood Avenue. He is expected to be okay.
Police do have not released the identity of the shooter.
