KHQ has learned the loss prevention officer shot at a Home Depot store in Dallas Tuesday afternoon had recently moved to Texas from Spokane. 

Two police officers and a loss prevention officer were shot at the home improvement store on Tuesday. One of the officers died and the other is in critical condition in the hospital. 

Loss Prevention Officer Scott Painter, who recently moved to Dallas from Spokane, was also shot. He is also listed in critical condition, but Chief U. Renee Hall said the department is "optimistic" about what they are seeing with Painter and the other officer right now.
