The trooper briefly lost sight of the fleeing suspect, but a DPS helicopter assisted with finding him. The suspect crossed a highway and went the wrong way on I-10. The suspect was stopped by two troopers. Gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and a DPS trooper. The suspect and a trooper were taken to local area hospitals. The suspect died the next day in the hospital. The wounded trooper was taken to University Hospital in the DPS helicopter and survived the shootout.

I love how the helicopter took the cop to the hospital but just left the criminal on the ground. Must be funny being the criminal like “oh shit a helicopter is coming I’m gonna be ok!” Then the helicopter leaves without him LOL

I’m glad the officer was ok. He looked like he was losing a lot of blood before the belt/tourniquet was put on.
