Suspect shot after pointing fake gun at cop in Texas mall

Officers with the Arlington Police Department responded to the Parks Mall on Sunday for a reported shoplifting.

Arlington police say an on-duty officer fired a couple of times after the suspect pointed what appeared to be a weapon at the officer.

Holiday shoppers took cover inside a mall in north Texas when police opened fire on a shoplifter who appeared to have been armed with a handgun.

Authorities say this is not an active shooter incident and the situation is under control. He said the responding officer was able to identify the registration on the vehicle and a higher-ranking officer chose to cancel the pursuit. 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.

"I know Arlington is looking for me, but I got a gun so if you pull me over I'm going to shoot so just be ready", the man said during the call.

An hour before the theft incident, Arlington 911 received a call from someone claiming to be William Dodd. Police have not yet identified him. He told operators that he was at Stovall Park and reiterated he had a gun and would shoot police if they came near him.

Dodd is in critical condition, Cook said. He warned the dispatcher that he had a gun and would shoot at police if they tried to pursue him.

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

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