HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Someone fired shots at a Houston police officer's cruiser early this morning in southeast Houston. Now police need your help to track down the shooter.

An HPD officer was driving around near Drew Street and Canfield around 12:30am when someone started shooting at the back of his car. He drove away and parked in a safe spot, and then got out and looked at the damage.

There were three bullet holes in the tail end of his vehicle made by a small-caliber gun, possibly an air gun or a .22. The bullets only hit the frame of the cruiser.

The officer was not hurt.

Right now, Houston police have no suspects, and no one in custody.
