ORIGINAL POST: Flower Mound Police are currently on scene of an active incident in the 2900 block of Termaine Drive.

Police originally responded to a 911 call at 7:04 p.m. in reference to a suicidal subject in a residence. Upon arrival, officers attempted to make contact with the male subject - the sole occupant of the home. At 8:05 p.m., the subject fired on law enforcement, striking three Flower Mound officers.

Two officers were transported to local hospitals. Both are in stable condition. The third officer was injured but cleared by medics on scene and was not transported.

Officers returned fire but have not made contact with the subject since the initial exchange of gunfire. The situation is ongoing, and there is a heavy police presence in the area. Please avoid the area as this is still an active scene.

Media staging will be at the Flower Mound Police Department, 4150 Kirkpatrick Ln.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

Last night, the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund held their 33rd Annual Candlelight Vigil to memorialize those Officers who sacrificed all for their communities. Every year, between 140 and 160 officersโ€™ lives are taken in the line of duty and the names of those lost in the line of duty from the previous year are engraved on the Police Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. This year, hundreds of names were engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, bringing the total to 22,611 officers killed in the line of duty memorialized there.

To hear the names of the fallen Officers read, you can watch the candlelight vigil here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8b_RCK0LcM&t=15s.

I just received a message regarding a missing child. I couldnโ€™t understand the address or intersection. The repeat message option didnโ€™t work.
What happened off Forest Ridge tonight? We walked out our back gate and were told we were a โ€œdistraction.โ€ I was worried and asked the officer because of previous shootings very close. I do not fault the officer that said that as I think that was a โ€œgo back insideโ€ warning. We left and almost an hour later, officers were still there and towing the car. We canโ€™t be left in the dark with so many things down this street lately. I have a young child in my home and need to be sure he is safe.
Merry Christmas and thank you all for all that you do to keep our community safe. We appreciate you very much! May you and your families stay blessed ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

Just save money and stop trying to hurt myself. Thank you

Is the Bedford PD participating in the DEA National Prescription Drug Takeback day on October 24th?
What an outstanding group of police officers! My Granddaughterโ€™s 5th birthday was today and the kindness shown by the Bedford Police Department will never be forgotten. Iโ€™m sorry if things are not always respectful and right for all of you but if I can ever do anything for any of you just let me know. Thank you and God bless.
I just received a call from my sister in law about Bedford police officer Hill. (Her father is retired LEO). Officer Hill assisted in rescuing a kitty in distress near Mexican Inn. She placed a call to Bedford Police for assistance and he arrived promptly. The kitty was jammed up under a light pole near a service road with cars zipping by. Officer Hill assisted my sis n law and a woman employee from Mexican Inn to recover the kitty. It was not easy. The employee has now adopted the kitty.
