Police are searching for a suspect who took a gun from an officer during a traffic stop Wednesday morning in southeast Houston.
The incident happened about 8:30 a.m. near Chavez High School at 8501 Howard, according to the Houston Independent School District.

Officials did not release the suspect's description or details about the traffic violation that prompted the officer to stop the car.
