Dallas police capture suspect in triple shooting at Home Depot (VIDEO)

Texas authorities captured a man late Tuesday accused of gunning down two cops and a security guard at a Home Depot in Dallas just hours earlier.

Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall told reporters 29-year-old Armando Juarez faces attempted capital murder charges after he opened fire on two cops as they escorted him from the store Tuesday afternoon. Officer Rogelio Santander died from his injuries Wednesday morning, Hall said. Officer Crystal Almeida and Scott Painter, a loss prevention officer for Home Depot, remain in critical condition.

It’s unclear why Home Depot employees wanted Juarez removed from the store in North Dallas. After the shooting, he evaded law enforcement for more than six hours until residents spotted his white pick-up truck in the uptown section of the city. He led authorities on a high speed chase, firing from the vehicle as he fled.

Juarez was booked into Dallas County jail late Tuesday, according to CBS News, and faces charges of aggravated assault on a public servant and felony theft. The news outlet reported he was arrested in January in a stolen car and has pleaded guilty to a prior drug charge.
