    DALLAS -- Two robberies and a carjacking in Mesquite that led to a chase ended with a store owner and the suspect fatally shot and a police officer shot in the arm east of downtown Dallas.

    The suspect was believed to have been involved in the fatal shooting of a doughnut shop owner during the robberies of two Mesquite businesses in the 2700 block of Motley Drive at about 10 a.m.

    The chase ended in the 5400 block of RL Thornton Freeway at Winslow Avenue before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

    After a foot chase, the suspect tried to carjack a woman at gunpoint as officers surrounded her car.

    Shots were fired and 15-year Dallas police veteran Gerry Melgoza, 45, was hit in the arm. The officer is expected to fully recover.

    Police shot and killed the suspect in the parking lot.

    Good job by the officers!


    I found the very last picture the most disturbing.

    How the fuck is a blur or a blue tarp disturbing?

    How about the poor schmo who did like he was told and got killed because of it? That disturbing enough for ya NBC?
    "Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
    He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
    The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
    He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
    The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
    He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
    He knows only the Cause.
    Now, who wants to quit?"

    I guess Channel 5 thinks tarps are scary - Especially blue ones

    They never seem disturbed about the actual murders - Only the photos.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Yea that cop is from a huge LE family. His brother in law(same agency)is an officer who was wounded a couple of years ago in a domestic. He lost a piece of his upper arm from a shotgun blast and the same officer lost his brother who was injured in an accident (LOD) and lingered in a coma for years before he passed away.
