Source from CNN says a gunman opened fire on a paramedic while the paramedic was treating a civilian with a gunshot wound Monday morning, Dallas police said.

The suspect was found dead from a “self-inflicted wound” in a nearby home searched by a police robot, said Mayor Mike Rawlings.

A second deceased person was found in the same home. Police have not released the identities of the dead.
Rawlings says the threat to the neighborhood is over.
Acting police Chief David Pughes says the shooting incident began as a “dispute between two neighbors.” Paramedics were called to the neighborhood and the gunman opened fire, authorities said.
A police sergeant “went in alone” and pulled out the injured paramedic.
Rawlings says the injured paramedic and the wounded citizen are in the intensive care unit at a local hospital.

Police had closed roads near the intersection of Dolphin Street and Interstate 30 shortly after the shooting in the search for the alleged shooter.
“Confirming 1 paramedic shot while responding to a call. No detail at this time. Thoughts and prayers are with all impacted,” Dallas Fire-Rescue tweeted earlier.
