Joshua Lott
The officer involved in this morning's shooting has been identified as Joshua Lott, who joined the department in May 2017.
"Officer Lott has served this community with great pride, and he has received several accolades in his short tenure with BPD," Burleson Police Chief Billy Cordell said.
Lott was awarded two life-saving awards, one in 2018 and one in 2020. He was given a police commendation in 2019 for work he made to recover seven motorcycles at Burleson Power Sports.
"Lott was fortunate today when there have been other officers that were not," Cordell said. "Our prayers are with Officer Lott and his family, the innocent victim's family whose life was taken when it is believed the suspect carjacked her vehicle, and to all law enforcement officers across the country and their families."
Cordell said that those wishing to help the family can email lcauthern@burlesontx.com.
"Burleson Police Department expresses our sincere appreciation to the multiple agencies who assisted and offered assistance, the U.S. Marshal's Office, Texas Rangers and Department of Public Safety," Cordell said. "We also want to express our thank you to the medical staff at John Peter Smith Hospital who rendered care to our officer. Thank you to our community for their love and well wishes."
