Fort Worth, Texas – a town of about 800,00 people – is about to become the next Boston Manhunt. Residents have already been ordered, at least in part of the outskirts of the city, to stay in their home as officers search for a suspect that shot a police officer.
The manhunt started after officers allegedly attempted to stop a vehicle to search a warrant. According to WFAA:
The shooting occurred after a fugitive team attempted to pull over a car to serve a warrant at Interstate 20 and Hulen Street, said Cpl. Tracey Knight, a spokeswoman with Fort Worth police. Police said the driver sped off and a vehicle pursuit followed. Two suspects bailed from the car and exchanged gunfire with police in the 2800 block of Longvue Avenue.
A suspect and officer were shot in the exchange. The Star-Telegram reports the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The second suspect fled into a wooded area and a search is underway.
