Four Dallas police officers responding to a shooting call were taken to a hospital early Thursday after being struck by a car, according to authorities.
Police responded shortly after 3 a.m. to the 3100 block of Community Drive, northwest of Dallas Love Field Airport, where they found a man shot in the leg. The suspected shooter, who police did not immediately identify, was arrested at the scene, Dallas police spokesperson Kristin Lowman said in an email. Police did not immediately describe the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
While police were investigating the shooting, an “uninvolved driver” hit a marked Dallas police car with one officer inside. The police car then struck three other officers, Lowman said.
All four officers were taken to a hospital in stable condition. Lowman said the driver stayed at the scene, but did not immediately say whether that driver was facing charges. “The investigation is ongoing,” she said.
