Injured Hitchcock police officer shoots fleeing high-speed chase suspect, police say
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Hitchcock police officer shot a high-speed chase suspect after being struck by the suspect's vehicle in the Heights area early Sunday morning.
At about 1:15 a.m., investigators said an officer attempted to stop a driver in a white Dodge Challenger in a traffic stop on Highway 6 near Monroe.
The driver refused to stop, leading Hitchcock police and Galveston County sheriff's deputies on a high-speed chase, according to Hitchcock PD Chief Wilmon Smith.
The suspect reportedly pulled over several times, acting as if he would stop, but took off again.
The chase went to I-10 into Houston, where the suspect turned onto N. Shepherd Drive into the Heights area and stopped.
