The Houston Shooting Press Briefing | 5 Officers Injured | 2 Suspects Put Down


The Houston Shooting Press Briefing

5 Houston police officers were wounded Monday as they tried to carry out a drug-related search warrant, as reported by concerned authorities.

4 of the officers sustained gunshot wounds and one was hurt during the exchange of firing, which took place in a southeast Houston neighbourhood. Two alleged culprits were shot and slain by return firing from officers, Houston police reported.

Chief of Houston Police Art Acevedo informed the media Monday evening that more than a dozen officers went to the house located on 7800 block of Harding Street, where a neighbour had described that narcotics were being sold.

“Instantly upon reaching the door, the police officers came under fire from one or two suspects from inside the house,” Acevedo said.

Two of the injured officers were in serious but stable state, he said. The two other injured officers are likely to make a complete recovery but will remain hospitalized for examination.

A 5th officer suffered a knee injury but was not shot, Acevedo added. He did not announce the names of the officers or provide further information about the two assailants.

At the news briefing, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner commended the hard work of law enforcement and first responders.

“That has been a difficult day for Houston, but I want to urge all Citizens to pray for our police officers,” he said.

President of the Houston Police Officer’s Union, Joe Gamaldi, spoke vehemently at a news conference in encouragement of his wounded comrades.

“We are sick and tired of holding targets on our back,” he said. “When all we’re seeking to do is safeguard this community and shield these families.”
