A man suspected of shooting a Dallas paramedic on Monday was found dead of an apparent suicide after a police robot search of a local home, which also uncovered the body of a second man in the same residence, officials told a news conference.

The paramedic underwent surgery and was in a Dallas hospital intensive care unit, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and police said, without releasing the names of anyone involved in the incident.The incident began when Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedics arrived to treat a civilian who had been shot. The suspect then arrived on the scene and opened fire, wounding the paramedic, the city of Dallas said in a statement.

Police who arrived on the scene were also fired upon and one officer suffered minor injuries, Rawlings and police said. One officer pulled the paramedic out and drove him to a hospital, police said.

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