SWAT was at a home in a Third Ward Houston neighborhood, where police say multiple shots were fired at officers sitting in a vehicle earlier in the morning.
Houston Police Department said the shooting was reported at 3:20 a.m. in the 2100 block of Sampson Street near the Gulf Freeway.
Houston PD Chief Art Acevedo, who spoke from the scene, said an unmarked undercover vehicle was hit and one of the bullets struck the driver’s seat where an officer was sitting. The officers did not return fire, Acevedo said.
“We had suspects that tried to kill a police officer on surveillance,” Acevedo said.
