HOUSTON - Three officers were injured in a shooting while trying to serve a warrant Tuesday, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

The gunman is still at large, according to KPRC.

HCSO officials said a deputy with the Harris County Sheriff's Department and two officers with the Texas Attorney General's Office were near Hartwick Road off U.S. Highway 59 trying to serve Daniel Trevino with a warrant when the shooting occurred.

Trevino opened fire and injured all three officers, who have been taken to an area hospital.

Trevino is believed to be hiding in a home in the area. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

The Texas Office of the Attorney General released the following statement in regards to the shooting:

“This afternoon, two of our officers from the Office of Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit were wounded while serving an arrest warrant alongside a deputy from the Harris County Sheriff’s Department.  The three wounded officers have been transported to a local hospital and are currently receiving treatment.  Out of respect for the officers and their families and for those who are still engaged in a very serious situation in Northeast Harris County, we will release no further information at this time.  Please pray for these officers, their families, and the courageous members of law enforcement who are involved.”
