One of two suspected robbers shot by Dallas officer dies
Police in Dallas are now investigating their own after a deadly shooting involving two suspected robbers overnight.

One of the accused,  23-year-old Louis Escalante, died of gunshot wounds soon after he was rushed to the hospital. The other man was also shot and remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said one of their own opened fire on the two men while they were sitting inside a car in the parking lot of Lombardy Plaza in North Dallas last night. Police said the officer shot the men after they became involved in a confrontation. There has been no word on whether the men were armed.

Officers said they approached the two men after identifying their vehicle as one stolen earlier during a carjacking outside an Irving  smoke shop. The driver reported that he had walked inside the business in time to see the accused men committing an aggravated robbery. That's when the men carjacked the customer and drove the stolen vehicle to Lombardy Plaza, where they were soon surrounded by police, authorities said.

The Dallas police officers involved did not suffer any injuries. In most cases, officers involved in a shooting are put on administrative leave while the department investigates.
