    Just after midnight, officers tossed concussion grenades into the home and discovered that the shooter and anyone inside had somehow escaped.

    The officer's injuries were described as non-life-threatening and taken to Parkland Hospital for treatment. The officer has since been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.

    Police Chief David Brown said the officer was lucky. He said the officer was in good condition and is expected to recover.
