The Dallas Police Associated tweeted that police officers had been "pinned down by gunfire", but police have yet to confirm that.

The injured Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedic is in critical but stable condition and has been moved to the ICU after undergoing surgery.

Derick Lamont Brown was later found dead from a "self-inflicted wound" when a police robot searched a home on the block where the shooting occurred, Mayor Mike Rawlings said.

Rawlings said Monday said the neighbor was also in intensive care, but no further information was shared about his condition Tuesday.

A gunman opened fire on Dallas Fire & Rescue paramedics Monday in Dallas, wounding at least one.

Police believe the shooting stemmed from a quarrel between neighbors.

The identity of the second person found dead in the home has not been released.

Authorities did not state a definitive motive for the shooting, believed to have ended with Brown shooting himself.

The injured person was transported to a hospital, police told KTVT.

The initial shooting victim was also hospitalized and is in an intensive care unit, Rawlings said.

Police said the DFR medic was the first to respond to a shooting call and began providing medical treatment upon arrival.

Responding Dallas PD officers approached his vehicle.

Dallas police say they are still trying to piece everything together and say a lot of what happened is captured on 911 recordings and survielance tapes.

She says her mother told her she didn't hear any shooting but "saw the SWAT guys and police setting up and going into the neighborhood".

The victim originally had been described as a firefighter; officials later said he is a fire department paramedic.

On Monday evening, David Pughes, Interim Police Chief, said that the police department was still doing interviews with neighbors and witnesses. Brown, who has extensive criminal record including assault, gun, drug and DWI charges, served as the gunsmith for Dallas' Huey P. Newton gun club, a Black Nationalist defense group and was previously the chairman of the New Black Panthers. Dozens of police vehicles are swarming a residential neighborhood near Interstate 30.

The paramedic, 36-year-old William An, was in stable but critical condition at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, said Jason Evans, a spokesman for Dallas Fire-Rescue.
