Officers shoot suspect, surround Dallas home

Posted: Updated:

Police are talking to several people after an officer-involved shooting Wednesday morning at a home in southeast Dallas.

It happened just before 2 a.m. while officers were investigating some criminal activity in the 6100 block of Petain Avenue.

Police said two suspects approached an officer. The officer fired his weapon at one of the suspects, who was armed.

The injured suspect, identified as Rene Hernandez, was taken to the hospital. He is expected to survive.

Police said other people involved in the incident fled into a house, so SWAT officers were called out to the scene.

All the occupants eventually surrendered and were detained. They are being interviewed by detectives.

Following the shooting, detectives gathered information leading them to another house where a suspect was hiding. That suspect was also taken into custody without incident, police said.

Police would not elaborate on the criminal activity they were investigating. The case is ongoing, they said.

Hernandez was on parole for murder. He faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

No officers were hurt.
