Suspect shot after pointing fake gun at cop in Texas mall

Reports: Officer-involved shooting closes Parks Mall in Arlington

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.
