Man Shot Inside Gas Station by Dallas Police Dies at Hospital


A 30-year-old man who was shot inside a gas station by Dallas Police Officers has succumbed to his injuries.

On Wednesday at 10:20 p.m. undercover officers witnessed Kyla Dail, 30, selling drugs at the LBJ Food Mart on the 13000 block of Jupiter Road.

Officers follow Dail as he leaves the gas station in his Nissan Versa. Eventually, officers attempt to conduct a traffic stop, but he flees the scene, evading the officers.

At 11:35 p.m. the same night, Dail returned to the gas station and was spotted by the undercover officers. Uniformed officers were called in and officers; Thomas Hoffman, Noah Hemm, and Michael Piering arrive at the scene.

The officers enter the store and approach Dail from behind, shouting commands at him. Dail, who has his hands raised, retrieves his handgun from his waist and tosses it away.

After witnessing the suspect’s handgun, officers yell out, “He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!”

Immediately after, Officer Hoffman fires his service weapon at Dail, striking him.

Dail was taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas where he was in critical condition.

On Thursday, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.

Following the incident and news of Dail’s passing, Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia released surveillance video and body-cam footage of the moments leading up to the shooting.
