Hall asked the community to contact police if they see Juarez or have any information on who and where he is.

"It sobers us to realize what our officers walk into day in and day out and how quickly they can become victims", the mayor said.

A civilian was also shot but there is no word on the civilian's condition.

In a tweet about the shooting Tuesday evening, the Dallas Police Department said the officers were critically wounded.
