*Developing…*
Several police officers were shot in the line of duty.
On Monday evening, five Houston police officers were attempting to deliver narcotics warrant. The ATF was assisting the officers.
One suspect was confirmed dead at the scene and has not been identified.

The president of the Houston Police Officer’s Union asked for prayers for the injured officers.

Local media was on the scene and spoke to residents of the normally quiet, family neighborhood.

The urge to go outside and see what’s going on is very tempting but incredibly dangerous. Just stay inside and hunker down and stay safe.

The situation is still developing, updates as they become available.
