A police officer has died of gunshot wounds in Houston after the driver of a car that he tried to pull over opened fire on him.

Houston police spokesman John Cannon says the officer died at a Houston hospital and that a bystander also was killed in the exchange of gunfire Monday morning.

Cannon says the suspect is wounded and also in a hospital.

He says the officer who was killed tried to pull over a car but that the driver sped away and hit another car. After the accident, the officer approached and the suspect opened fire.

Cannon says the officer fired back and that the suspect took off on foot. Other police officers captured the suspect.

Cannon says the officer was based in the southwest Houston enclave of Bellaire.
