An intense manhunt was under way Thursday morning in Fort Worth for a group of suspects who police said attempted to rob an off-duty officer.
The incident was reported around 3:00 a.m. in the Como neighborhood near Pershing Avenue.
Officers believe that the group of suspects first attempted to rob a grocery store, then tried to snatch the female police officer's purse after they had failed.
Police said the suspects fled when the officer opened fire. One suspect was taken into custody, but three are still being sought
