A Robbery Suspect Confronted Police in North Oak Cliff, and Was Promptly Shot in the Ass

This is not Justen Hill.
Two armed men held up the 7-Eleven on Zang and Colorado Sunday afternoon. As they made their getaway, Dallas Police were fanned out, searching for a vehicle matching the description given by witnesses. A police helicopter crisscrossed the area. It didn't take long for officers to find them.

What followed was a wild ride through the streets of North Oak Cliff.

The chase apparently wound through Kessler Park. The suspect in the passenger seat bailed out and was quickly arrested. The other suspect in the robbery, a man named Justen Hill, 24, sped on. He came to a dead-end on Green Street in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood past its intersection with North Winnetka Avenue.

He stepped out of the vehicle with a gun in his hand, police say. According to a couple of witnesses (who also happen to be my neighbors), he wore a bandanna and aviator sunglasses, like some Halloween approximation of an outlaw. Police say they shouted at him to put down his weapon, but he turned to face them instead.

The witnesses say they heard multiple gunshots. The man, they said, looked as though he took a direct hit to the buttocks and hit the pavement.

"The suspect was transported to Methodist Central Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries," the report says.

My neighbors were clearly suffused with adrenaline as they recounted the incident. It was like a movie, they said, as they watched the bloody desperado carried off to the hospital for treatment of his fleshy, ignominious wound.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office didn't have a mugshot of the man. He's still recovering in the hospital. When he's well enough, he'll be booked on suspicion of aggravated assault and aggravated assault on a public servant. They're charging him with aggravated kidnapping because the man police believed was his alleged accomplice bailed out of the car. There's a thin line between hitching a ride and becoming an accessory. Oak Cliff, y'all.

This suspect is MY SON!!!!!! He is not a horrible thug. He found his self in a bad cross road in life and made a bad decision. (Sudden onset bipolar with psychosis at the age of 18 played a major part in his thought process) He is a quiet young man loved by many people who remain in absolute shock over these events!

He did rob two 7 eleven stores with a empty gun (no bullets any where on him or with him asking for $60 dollars and asking for forgiveness both time. A illegal Immagrent jumped in his car for hope of profit.

I saw the vidio of my son's capture. I saw him get out of his car with his arms out and back turned to the police. I saw/heard them shoot my son THREE times IN THE BACK and when he fell to the ground t kicked him then threw him into a police vehicle drove him to a parking lot and left him there bleeding until the paramedics arived. He went into emergency surgery.

Am I condoning what my son did? NO!!!!

BUT do I think being shot 3 times IN THE BACK is sickening YES.

I will always love the man he is and I will pray that God has mercy on the souls of all involved.

If I had one wish it would be that my son is made healthy physically and mentally for the remainder of his life. Amen

Please remember my son in your thoughts and prayers.

A mom ♡

Very unclassy article title, embarrassing for the Dallas Observer.

If he turned to face the cops, how was he shot in the ass?  Dallas seems to be the land of magic bullets.

It might be a technicality, that as soon as he decided he wanted out of the car, the driver had to legally stop the car and let him out. Which, since he bailed, clearly wasn't done.

I think there's a problem with the third to last sentence and I'm not sure I understand - is the fact that the other dude jumped out mean that he was kidnapped and NOT an accomplice?

 @theslowpath The police weren't real clear on that point. First, he was an accomplice, they I guess they decided perhaps he wasn't, or they didn't have enough info to prove he was, so they said he was kidnapped.
