Police: Man opens fire on off-duty officers

Two off-duty Houston police officers were almost shot overnight.

The two male officers were coming home in plain clothes when they spotted a strange man outside their apartment complex on the South Loop and Chaffin. They approached the man when they said he hid in the shadows. Before they had a chance to identify themselves as officers, investigators say the man shot at them once.

The man then ran away and hasn't been seen since. The off-duty officers were not hit.
