Gunfire rang out in Southeast Houston early Monday evening where four police officers were shot as they attempted to serve a warrant in a narcotics investigation.>> Immediately upon breaching the door, the officers came under fire from one or two suspects inside the house. We're not sure how many of those suspects fired this time, I should imagine it was a pretty chaotic scene over there.
The investigation is unfolding.>> Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo says two of the officers were short in the neck and under went surgery. They are listed in critical but stable condition.>> This has been a tough day for our city. But I certainly want to encourage all Houstonians to pray for all of our police officers who are at Memorial Hermann.
This is the one of the finest hospitals you will find anywhere in the country, and they have been attended to with the best medical care.>> Local media showed Houston police gathered outside of an area hospital where the officers were being treated.>> At the scene of the shooting, a SWAT team took over operations and sent robots into the home where images sent back showed two suspects had been struck by returning gunfire.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
