Two suspects shot dead by Houston police in gun battle

Five Houston police officers were shot on Monday as they attempted to serve a warrant in a narcotics investigation and two suspects were shot dead, the city’s police chief said.

Two of the officers were in critical condition and undergoing surgery while two were stable, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told reporters.

The officers came under fire when they tried to enter a home in southeast Houston.

“Immediately upon breaking the door the officers came under fire from one or more suspects in the house,” said Acevedo.

A SWAT team took over the situation and sent in robots to check the home. Images from the robots showed two suspects had been struck by return gunfire. They were pronounced dead at the scene, Acevedo said.
