DALLAS – Authorities charged a man shot by a Dallas police officer during a robbery call with two counts of capital murder, officials said Wednesday.
Roderick Harris, 23, was accused in the fatal shootings of brothers Alfredo Gallardo, 45, and Carlos Gallardo, 36, at a southeast Dallas trailer home Tuesday night. He also faces three counts of aggravated assault on a public servant.
Harris remained in serious condition Wednesday at a Dallas hospital, police said.
Dallas police were responding to a call of a robbery in progress around 9:15 p.m. at the trailer park when officers heard gunshots coming from inside a home. Harris came out of the home and shot at one of the officers, Dallas police spokesman Lt. Andy Harvey said.
The shots missed and the gunman ran around the home, where Officer Justin Bowen saw him and fired several times, officials said.
Police located a second suspect outside the trailer.
No officers were injured during the shooting.
Neighbor Adria Delacruz, 15, said in Wednesday's online edition of The Dallas Morning News that one of the dead men's daughters was at her home when the girl's brother ran in and told them two men had broken into their house. The girl called police to report the robbery, Adria said.
The girl's mother, sister and two boys were inside the home during the robbery, Adria said.
Two wallets, a stereo remote control and $2 were later recovered, according to a police report.
