HOUSTON (AP) — Three officers have been shot while serving a family violence warrant at a Houston-area home and the search continues for the suspected gunman.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office tweeted that one deputy and two officers from the Texas Attorney General's Office were wounded Tuesday afternoon. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says the injuries are not life-threatening and the officers were being treated at a Houston hospital.
Chief Deputy Edison Toquica (toh-KWEE'-kuh) says agents from the AG's office and sheriff's investigators were serving a warrant, at the threshold of a door, when the suspect began shooting. Officers returned fire.
Toquica says the warrant for Daniel Trevino involves violation of a protective order.
The sheriff says a motorcycle deputy was in an accident while assisting with traffic control nearby. The deputy was conscious and stable.
