DALLAS (AP) — Authorities say an exchange of gunfire in Dallas has wounded a community college police officer and a person that police were trying to arrest.
Dallas police say that Dallas College Police Department officers were investigating a suspicious vehicle about 6:30 p.m. Thursday near the school’s El Centro Campus when they determined a person had an outstanding warrant.

The person they were trying to arrest also was taken to a hospital, but detail on a condition wasn’t immediately released. The shooting is under investigation by Dallas police.
