Early this morning Dallas Police officers responded to a call for help from Lewisville Police. A chase ensued, resulting in a shootout that left a suspect injured, arrested and hospitalized.
Lewisville and Farmers Branch Police were involved in a vehicle chase with a restaurant-burglary suspect, a 48-year-old Asian male, who fled the crime scene in a pickup truck, firing his weapon at police officers from both departments after they attempted to thwart his escape.
Dallas Police joined the pursuit near the 11300 block of I-635, near Walnut Hill in the Lake Highlands area, where the suspect exited the truck and took off on foot.
Reportedly while hiding along the wall of the Regency Hotel off I-635, he opened fire on the two officers, one a Dallas patrolman, who caught up to him, according to a report from DPD.
The Dallas police officer, who was not hit, returned fire, striking the suspect, who was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police reportedly recovered cash scattered around the vehicle near the hotel.
