HOUSTON, TX – An investigation is underway following two undercover HPD officers being shot at while conducting surveillance at Spotts Park.
According to the officers, they noticed two vehicles leaving the park after hours. One was a red sedan with Virginia state license plates and another was a black Ford Taurus with paper plates. The officers began to follow the random cars until a marked unit could be called out to perform a traffic stop.
The suspects soon recognized the officers’ unmarked cars and made an attempt to lose them. The officers continued to trail the vehicles into the Lydia and Springhill area, where they lost the vehicle. The officers say they came to an intersection and gunshots were then fired from two directions.
Two vehicles with weapons inside were found near 3726 Amos Street. An AK47 was also discovered down the street of Lydia and Springhill.
Three males were taken into custody, but no information has been provided if they were directly involved with the shooting. No officers were reported injured.
