The mayor of Dallas says a police officer has died a day after a shooting that also wounded another officer and a home improvement store employee.

Mayor Mike Rawlings announced at a city council meeting Wednesday that officer Rogelio Santander succumbed to his wounds at a Dallas hospital. Santander had been with the police force for three years.

Another officer, Crystal Almeida, is in critical condition, as is a loss-prevention officer for Home Depot who also was shot Tuesday.

Authorities have identified the suspected gunman as 29-year-old Armando Juarez, who was apprehended hours later following a police chase.

Juarez is being held at the Dallas County jail on a bond in excess of $1 million. The charges against him include aggravated assault on a public servant.
