He was taken into custody shortly before 10 p.m. on Tuesday after a lengthy auto chase involving officers of various law enforcement agencies.

Police had launched a manhunt for Armando Luis Juárez, 29, earlier on Tuesday.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said on Twitter he is closely monitoring the situation while Texas Governor Greg Abbott offered his thoughts and prayers to the Dallas Police Department and the shot officers.

It's unclear how the shooting unfolded but authorities began looking for the gunman after he fled in a white pickup, Hall had said.

A woman was also taken into custody, Hall said.

According to a report in Heavy.com, Juarez's relative said he is now unemployed but he previously worked alongside his father as a bricklayer and a forklift operator.

The city did not intend at this time to release the names of the officers or their medical status at the hospital because that would be inconsiderate to the families, the mayor said.

Myanmar officials could not be reached for further details and the post did not say whether any more returns were expected soon. The US government and the United Nations describe the violence against the Rohingya as " ethnic cleansing ".

Dallas police say they have arrested a suspect in the shooting.

The officers and the civilian are now in surgery.

According to officials 911 dispatchers received a call to go to the Home Depot Tuesday night shortly after officers arrived on the scene.

"Mr. Armando Juarez was arrested - he is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault on a police officer".

Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall, at a press conference, asked everyone to pray for the victims and their families.

ABC affiliate WFAA reports that the officers and a civilian were shot at a Home Depot in north Dallas.
