Arlington officers wounded, suspect killed in gun battle

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a drug suspect opened fire on Arlington police officers as they approached a home to serve a search warrant, wounding two before being killed in an exchange of gunfire.

Arlington police Lt. Christopher Cook said a member of the department’s tactical team was shot more than once during Tuesday afternoon’s gun battle and is in stable condition Wednesday. Another officer suffered a hand injury, but it’s not clear if the officer was struck by a bullet or shrapnel.

Police have released the identity of the suspect, who died at the scene.

Nearby homes were evacuated as tactical officers searched the shooting ] Cook said several people were detained.
