DPD Announcement from the Northeast Dallas Substation
As those who follow me on FB know, I shared information on this incident as it was happening yesterday. We heard the sirens and could see the news helicopters as well as the police helicopters orbit just to our west. The Home Depot, where the shooting inside the store occurred, is just down the street from Medical City Dallas Hospital. The officers involved are from the nearby police substation. Below is a message posted to our neighborhood association this morning from the DPD Public Information Officer of that substation.

Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and support for the past six years plus as Sandi did everything she could to be here with all of us. She is now free and not hurting anymore. I am still trying to pay off her past treatments at Medical City Dallas Hospital as well as at Texas Oncology. While the hospital can't handle direct donations, if you can help and would prefer to donate directly, please contact Debra, the financial counselor at TEXAS ONCOLOGY in SUITE 220 of Building D at Medical City Dallas Hospital in Dallas, Texas. We thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and support for the past six years plus as Sandi did everything she could to be here with all of us.
