ROBBERY TURNS INTO OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING

About 10 pm as the Dollar General in the 12100 block of FM 2025 in Cleveland/San Jacinto County 3 black males entered the store and robbed it. Officers had been tipped that a robbery could possibly occur but did not know when. They were in the area when the call went out. As the males were exiting the store multiple units arrived, deputies ordering them to drop their weapons. One suspect as they were running down the side of the building pointed a firearm at the officers. As the officers took cover at least 6 deputies and one DPS Trooper fired on the trio. One male was struck and went down the two others fled into the woods, they believe at least one is possibly hit also. A DPS helicopter responded as did Texas Department of Criminal Justice with dogs and horses. Montgomery County responded with K-9’s and Montgomery County Crime Scene was asked by the Texas Rangers to assist in the investigation. At 330 am the search was called off due to rain moving into the area. The one suspect who was hit was transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition. He has since been released and transported to the San Jacinto County Jail. Bullet holes could be seen in the side of the building along with shell casings littering the ground. The investigation is continuing.
