Dallas county grand jury indicts the suspect accused of shooting and killing a Dallas police officer

DALLAS -

A Dallas county grand jury indicts the suspect accused of shooting and killing a Dallas police officer last month.

Armando Juarez True, 30, billed on a capital murder charge for the death of officer Rogelio Santander. He is also formally charged with attempted capital murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant for wounding DPD officer Crystal Almeida and Home Depot loss prevention officer Scott Painter. Prosecutors will be seeking the death penalty. 

"We consider all kinds of factors. And you know we not only the offense itself, we considered history. We considered the circumstances. We considered everything everything that took place leading up to that. So there's a lot of factors that go into us looking at whether or not a case should. We should seek death in a particular case," Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said. 

Investigators say Juarez pulled a gun on officers Santander and Almeida,  along with Painter, while he was being detained as a shoplifting suspect. Officer Santander died in the hospital.

Doctors released officer Almeida a few days ago and Painter was discharged back on the seventh.
