Officer shoots chase suspect in torso

HOUSTON

An undercover narcotics detective was following the suspect and had requested a marked unit pull him over, police said. When the officer in the marked car tried to pull him over, the suspect led him on a chase until he crashed in a ditch at Texas and Nevada.

The officer asked the suspect to show his hands, but when the suspect ignored the request, the other shot him in the upper arm/chest area.

The suspect was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital via Life Flight in an unknown condition.
