Dallas police officers responded to calls of an active shooter on Monday morning. While information is still being released, the scene happened at  3200 block of Reynolds Avenue.

Dallas Police Association reported that a firefighter has been shot and is now in surgery. It was also reported that police officers were ‘pinned down by gunfire.’

Police told NBC 5 DFR was called to a home when someone came out of a home and opened fire. DFR said an EMT Unit’s vehicle was hit and a paramedic was injured

A neighbor who was outside the home at the time of the shooting was also shot. That person is in stable condition, according to Dallas police.

Officials have not been able to confirm whether the call for help was legitimate or designed to lure first responders to the area.

The condition of the paramedic is not known, though Dallas Fire-Rescue confirms the injured firefighter was taken to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas and is undergoing surgery. NBC 5’s Ken Kalthoff noted a large DFR presence at the hospital.

The suspect is still at large. He is a black male, bald, and wearing a dark green shirt. People are urged to stay away as it is thought the suspect also has a rifle.

Perhaps this will aid in the push for firefighters and first responders to be granted the right to carry while on duty. If the firefighter who was shot had been carrying, then there could have possibly been a different outcome in this situation.
