The officer, an eight-year veteran, was shot in the leg and was listed in good condition at JPS.
The officer, who was not identified, was responding to a robbery call at Whataburger in the 6400 block of Brentwood Stair Road shortly before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.
“The officer saw either money falling out or being thrown by the suspect,” said Police Chief Jeff Halstead in a news conference. “The officer who was still in his car chases the suspect who was on foot.”
