At least three police officers were shot while responding to a call at a home in Cedar Park, Texas, according to local authorities.
The department’s Twitter account initially said the officers had responded to a call at the home off Natalie Cove, about 25 miles north of Austin.
The suspect barricaded themselves inside the house following the shots, before multiple law enforcement agencies arrived on the scene.
“We are on scene of a shooting where multiple Cedar Park Police Officers have been shot while responding to a call at a home off Natalie Cove,” the message read. “Subject is barricaded inside the home and multiple law enforcement agencies are on scene.”
A local Fox 7 reporter claimed sources out on the street told her there were children inside of the house. She also said police had confirmed the wounds the three officers sustained. One was shot in the arm, another in the chest — but was protected by a Kevlar vest — and the third officer had a bullet graze their head.
