LITTLE ROCK, AR - A suspect the Little Rock Police Department says was shot during a manhunt this morning by one of its officers, is hospitalized in critical condition.

The gunfire broke out along University Avenue and H Street after officers had already taken a second suspect into custody.

The manhunt got underway after police responded to reports of car break-ins at the Linden Court Condominiums on North Pierce Street and Lee Avenue, just off University.

That's where police took one suspect into custody and began searching on University Avenue between H and Evergreen streets for the other suspect.

Police say officers caught up with the suspect and he fought with police before running away again.

The next time officers met the suspect, investigators say he fired shots at officers and an officer fired back, hitting the suspect in the upper body.

The officer was not injured.

Nearby business owners drove up on all the police cars in shock.

"It's good that it didn't happen during business hours where it's lots of people and it could be a hot mess," says business owner Au Tran.

Original report (7:20 a.m.):
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Little Rock Police are on the scene where a manhunt has ended with an officer-involved shooting.

Police say the incident began when officers were called to 416 N. Pierce (Linden Court Condominiums) on a report of individuals breaking into cars earlier this morning. That location is alongside Lee Avenue just off University Avenue. 

A short time later, one person has been taken into custody.

About an hour later, police found a second suspect in the area of University Avenue and H Street, where shots were fired.

Reports from the scene say the suspect appears to have been shot and was taken away in an ambulance.

Dozens of police cars rushed to the scene moments after officers put their weapons down and traffic was being diverted from the area.

The area was sealed off with crime scene tape.
