DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say an officer was slightly hurt after gunfire from an unknown person struck a patrol car traveling on an access road near Interstate 45.
Sr. Cpl. Melinda Gutierrez said the officer suffered minor injuries from flying glass in the shooting early Thursday.
The officer, whose name wasn’t released, was treated and released from a hospital. Gutierrez said the other officer in the car wasn’t injured in gunfire that damaged a passenger-side door and a window.
Responding officers were unable to locate a suspect. Gutierrez didn’t immediately provide additional details.
This was the second incident this week of damage to a Dallas police car. Police on Sunday arrested a man accused of using a sledgehammer to break windows of about a dozen patrol cars in a substation lot.
