Four officers injured after motorist plows into a police cruiser during armed standoff

DALLAS, TX – In an early morning standoff with a shooting suspect, four Dallas police officers were injured, according to local authorities. The incident occurred around 3:10 a.m. in a residential area of North Dallas when officers responded to a shooting report.

The suspect had reportedly barricaded himself inside a home after allegedly shooting another individual. Inside the home with the suspect were two women and children, according to local authorities. The shooting victim, found with a leg wound, was transported to a nearby hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.

While officers were working at the scene, an unrelated incident occurred when a pickup truck driver collided with a marked police car, causing it to hit three other officers. The driver remained at the scene and was subsequently tested for signs of intoxication. The results came back negative.

The police vehicle was being used as cover by officers attempting to coax the suspect out of the house. All four officers involved in the accident were taken to a local hospital and are reportedly in stable condition.

In a surprising turn of events, the shooting suspect attempted to escape by jumping out of a window. However, the police managed to apprehend him at the scene. The investigation into the shooting and the circumstances leading up to it is currently ongoing.
