HPD's Jodi Silva says the shootings happened around midnight on Saddle Rock, a cul-de-sac near Sweetwater, after officers noticed a man driving erratically.
"Officer Fikes approaches the suspect, and at which point the suspect gets out of his vehicle and begins firing at Officer Fikes. Officer Fikes is struck and then Officer Dotson returns fire and strikes the suspect and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene."
Officer W. Fikes was shot in the arm and is in good condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital.
