Suspect hospitalized after officer-involved shooting in League City, sheriff says

A person who exchanged gunfire with League City police has been hospitalized, according to Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset.

He did not know the person’s condition late Friday.

The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office was notified at 8:50 p.m. of a shooting between the suspect and League City police officers, he said. It’s unclear what led up to the shooting, but League City officers contained the suspect at Texas Ave and Hewitt St.

Trochesset said he did not know whether the suspect was a man or woman. League City police only identified the person as an “active shooter” in a tweet. Trochesset was not aware of any other injuries as of late Friday.

Police arrested the suspect around 9 p.m. before the person was taken to a hospital, authorities said. The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.
