🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — A shootout in southeast Dallas has left a suspect dead and an undercover police officer wounded.

Nearly a dozen squad cars were dispatched early Friday morning after reports of two men with guns in Pleasant Grove.

Police said the plainclothes officer was shot in the leg when he confronted two suspects, leading to more gunfire. One suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The other suspect fled, but police soon caught and arrested him.

Police said they recovered weapons from both suspects, whose names have not been released. Officers were unclear what led to the shooting or how many shots were fired.

Police took the wounded officer to a hospital, where he was treated and released a few hours later. Police woouldn’t identify the officer because he’s still undercover.
