Houston police in standoff Saturday, May 7th, 2011; Two officers wounded, traffic disrupted

May 7th 2011 at 6:11 PM

Breaking news for Houston, Texas! Police in a standoff with an as-yet-unidentified shooter are said to now be in negotiations with a suspect, after two officers have been wounded. No word from Houston police yet as to what, if any, demands the suspect may be making, while the suspect has barricaded himself in a building at the corner of Pierce and Fannin. In the event the suspect is ultimately unreasonable, Houston S.W.A.T. is standing at the ready.

On Twitter, the news came in from @mpoppel (now owned by msnbc.com) immediately after the chance at seeing a photo of the scene in Houston, as the event unfolds.

Of course, it's Chron.com which comes forward with the earliest full report. The shooting occurred at the Greyhound Bus Station at 2121 Main. One officer suffered an injury to the hand, and the other, a leg wound. Both officers were transported to the Memorial Hermann Hospital for treatment. Although no details have been shared at this time, a source has confirmed the injuries are not life-threatening, fortunately. Updates will be made as the story unfolds.

Police cruisers are blocking all surrounding streets, including Interstate at U.S. 45. The Pierce Elevated has also been temporarily shut down, not only to ease the burden of capturing the suspect, but also as a matter of citizen safety. Based on the reports coming in from Houston News, readers can see a great number of violent reports coming in from nearly all over Houston, Texas.

Of course, our hearts go out to all of those brave enough to wear the blue, and their families, to face down those who will do others harm. Rest assured, the standoff will be brought under control by Houston police, and the suspect identified.
