While the preliminary investigation determined officers who responded did not observe criminal activity among the people in the area at the time, this event ultimately led to tragic consequences.
Our homicide detectives are currently working to determine who was involved in this incident, and how.
I’ve ordered an internal investigation to determine if we could have handled the circumstances of this call differently.
Every day the men and women of this department work to keep our city safe.
It’s important that we gather all the facts before coming to any conclusions.
I am committed to the highest level of accountability, professionalism and transparency for the Dallas Police Department.”
