Officials say at least three Houston police officers have been wounded in a shooting. In a tweet, Houston police say the officers were "struck with gunfire following an encounter with a suspect" Monday afternoon in a neighbourhood in southeast Houston.

Mayor Sylvester Turner tweeted that the suspect "is down" and at least three officers have been injured. Police say the officers are being transported to a hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known. Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers' Union, says one of the injured officers was taken to a hospital by helicopter. (AP) RCJ
