More details have been revealed in the aftermath of a shooting in Arlington Friday night that left a suspect dead and an Arlington police officer critically injured.

Officers found 2.05 oz. of marijuana and two digital scales in the black Toyota Corolla Jessica Lee Lawson was driving, according to police spokesman Lt. Chris Cook. The officer who started the traffic stop initially called in backup because he smelled marijuana, Cook wrote in an email.

Two officers showed up to the scene, one of which was the officer who got shot by Treshun Symone Miller after Miller tried to run away.

The officer who was shot remains in the hospital with a critical injury to his pelvic area. The officer who made the traffic stop and shot Miller has been placed on routine administrative leave. 

5:46 p.m. Saturday Dec. 12 UPDATE:

The driver of a black Toyota Corolla sedan carrying a man who shot at and then was later killed by Arlington police has been identified as Jessica Lee Lawson, 21, according to a search warrant.

The warrant also confirms that Treshun Symone Miller, 20, used a handgun to open fire at Arlington police officers after a traffic stop in Arlington Friday night.

This is not Miller's or Lawson's first interaction with Arlington police. Miller was the getaway driver and Lawson was a passenger in his car during a 2017 shooting at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco. Neither one was the alleged shooter. Arlington police arrested the two of them in that case.

Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson tweeted that the Arlington police officer who was shot during a Friday night traffic stop "continues to receive outstanding care and is surrounded by family and friends."

In the same tweet, Johnson also gave thanks to the community on behalf of the police department.


An Arlington police officer who was shot during a traffic stop Friday night was recovering Saturday morning, and the suspect in the shooting had died from his injuries after police returned fire, officials said.

The incident unfolded shortly after 10 p.m. Friday in the 1700 block of West Randol Mill Road, near North Fielder Road, police said.

An officer had pulled over a car for a traffic stop, and then requested backup. When one of the responding officers arrived, he asked the passenger to step out of the vehicle. 

The passenger then fled on foot across the parking lot, at one point firing a gun at the responding officer, striking him, said Lt. Chris Cook, police spokesman.

The officer who initially made the traffic stop returned fire, striking the suspect.

Two other people in the car were uninjured.

Both the officer and the suspect were taken to the hospital. The suspect died of his wounds and the officer was treated for gunshot wounds to the leg. 

Chief Will Johnson tweeted shortly after midnight that he had spoken with the officer and that the officer was "receiving excellent care."

Johnson tweeted a picture of several police cars in a parking lot, where police tape had been put up.

"Keep our team and family in your thoughts and prayers," Johnson tweeted.
