    Watch Out For That Patrol Car

    Two deputies were taken to JPS hospital in Fort worth early this morning after being involved in an accident. Investigators tell us the driver of a Tarrant County Sheriff's Office van collided with a Fort Worth Police car. Eight deputies were inside the van and were on their way back to the sheriff's office at the end of their shift. The accident happened on Allen just east of 35W. There was minor damage to both vehicles.

    Dallas Officer Fires at Suspect

    Two off-duty Dallas police officers were working overnight in the 2000 block of commerce street when investigators tell us they heard gunshots being fired nearby. The officers went to check the situation out and saw suspects stopped at a red light at Pearl. Police say a passenger inside the car was firing a gun into the air and pointed his weapon toward one of the officers. Fearing for his life, and after telling the suspect to drop the weapon, the officer fired at the suspect and the vehicle took off. The vehicle was found abandoned a short time later. No word on the suspects or if anyone was shot.
