Three people are hospitalized after a late-night shooting involving the Dallas police.

Shortly before 10 p.m., a Dallas police officer was flagged down by a person along the 2500-block of Grand Avenue who said they had just been robbed at gunpoint and that the robber was robbing someone else at that very moment.

When officers approached a vehicle where the man was said to be, a man inside pulled out a gun. The officers then opened fire and the vehicle, with a female victim inside, sped away.

Officers later found the vehicle, but the man was nowhere in sight.

A foot search for the gunman was then conducted.  During the search, officers found a man who might who might have been the armed robber. While attempting to detain him, the man reached into his pocket and was then shot by a police officer.

In all, three people were transported to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas with gunshot wounds. None of the injuries are life-threatening and none of the injured were police officers.

Investigators have not released the alleged robber's name and have not said what charges he is expected to face.
