3 Houston police officers wounded after chase, shootout
HOUSTON (AP) — A police chase in Houston ended with a shootout that wounded three officers Thursday, authorities said.
The incident began about 2:40 p.m. Thursday with a report of a disturbance involving a weapon. The ensuing car chase ended when a suspect's vehicle crashed at an intersection just off Interstate 69 on the southeastern edge of downtown Houston.
A surveillance video aired by KTRK-TV showed officers jumping from a patrol car and exchanging what sounded like gunfire.
Police said in a statement that a suspect fled in a white Mercedes and the three wounded officers were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Police did not describe the conditions of the officers or provide any other details. Calls to a police spokesman were not immediately answered.
