    Nine shots were fired, but only three hit the substation in the 1900 block of East Camp Wisdom Road in southeast Oak Cliff, according to a Dallas police tweet.

    In a news release, department officials said the shots were fired from a vehicle traveling east on Camp Wisdom Road.

    Chopper 5 flew over the building and was able to see a shattered window on one side of the building.

    The department said the perimeter officer observed muzzle flashes but did not see the suspect vehicle.

    Numerous police officers collected evidence around the building.

    There are no arrests but if the person is caught, they will face an offense of Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant.

    This latest violence towards police comes less than a year after a man shot and killed four Dallas police officers and a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer in downtown Dallas. Nine other officers were injured on July 7, 2016.

    In 2015, James Boulware opened fire on Dallas Police headquarters. The shootout shattered multiple windows at the headquarters building near the department's information desk. No officers were injured. Police snipers shot Boulware after a standoff in Hutchins, killing him.
