On Sunday, March 1, 2020, at approximately 4:38 a.m., Haltom City Officers responded to the 2300 block of Thomas Road for a report of a person with a gun. While en route, officers were notified that a victim had been shot with a shotgun. Upon arrival, officers observed a vehicle leaving the area and attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield and led the officers on a pursuit that ended with the vehicle coming to a stop in Van Zandt County close to Canton. The driver, a 42 year old Hispanic female, and a passenger, a 37 year old Hispanic male, were taken into custody without incident. They were transported to the Van Zandt County Jail to be seen by a magistrate before being transported back to Haltom City.

Her condition is unknown, at this time. The driver and passenger of the vehicle have been identified as Rhoda Jimenez, 42 years of age, and Armando Dimas, Jr., 37 years of age, respectively. They are both being held at the North Richland Hills Jail on charges of Evading Arrest in a Vehicle and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Bonds will be set once they see a magistrate later today. Detectives are still investigating their involvement in this offense, and more information will be released as it becomes available.
