HOUSTON – A suspect was shot by a Hitchcock police officer after a lengthy chase from Galveston County to Houston’s Heights area early Sunday, authorities said.

Hitchcock PD Police Chief Wilmon Smith said an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a Dodge Challenger at Highway 6 near FM 2004 at around 1 a.m.

The driver refused to comply, Smith said, turned to FM 2004 and entered I-45 northbound toward Houston, traveling at a high rate of speed. The responding officer then called for backup.

During the pursuit, Smith said there were multiple stops along the way, but the driver continued northbound on I-45 near I-10.

Sometime later, as they approached I-10 near North Shepherd, one of the Hitchcock PD officers was able to stop the suspect in front of his vehicle.

That was when, Smith said, the suspect took off and allegedly struck one of the officers with his vehicle.

That officer took out his gun and shot at the suspect. He was struck one time.

Smith said he attempted to flee once more but officers were able to take him into custody.
