A police news release says the shooting occurred about 7 p.m. Wednesday in northwest Dallas, about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) south of Farmers Branch as the officer approached the vehicle in a parking lot and the driver began to pull away.

Police say the driver was pronounced dead at a hospital while two other people in the vehicle were uninjured and are being questioned. Police say the officer suffered an undisclosed "minor" injury.

No names have been released and police in Dallas and Farmers Branch did not immediately return a phone call for comment Thursday morning.
