Volunteers help rebuild fence damaged by suspect in Dallas police chase

A group organized a way to help one property damaged when an accused cop killer led Dallas police on a lengthy chase.

It's been more than two weeks since Armando Juarez’s attempt to avoid arrest ended with him crashing in an Oak Lawn neighborhood.

Volunteers from Home Depot and the group Rebuilding Together spent hours on Friday at Central Christian Church off Westside Drive rebuilding a fence. Suspected shooter Juarez crashed into the fence during the police chase.

“This project I think has a special tug at the heart,” said Cara Mendelsohn, Rebuilding Together executive director. “There's so much tragedy surrounding this shooting and to be part of repairing that feels great.”

Juarez faces charges, including capital murder, for killing Dallas Police Officer Rogelio Santander. He's also charged with attempted capital murder for trying to kill Santander's partner Crystal Almeida and loss prevention officer Scott Painter.
