The Dallas Police confirmed earlier in the evening that the two officer were in critical condition.

Dallas police confirm that two officers were shot at a Home Depot in Northeast Dallas. The civilian's condition was not available.

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. The TV station described both officers as "rookies in their 20s" and said one of them was shot in the back of the head.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also tweeted about the shooting, saying his thoughts and prayers were with the officers. "Please pray for our officers and their families", according to the Tweets.

Also, multiple agencies are assisting in the investigation, she said, including local, state and federal agencies.
