HOUSTON -- Houston officers were on the lookout early Friday for two men who led them on a chase.

One of the suspects opened fire on the officers, but no injuries were reported.

According to the Houston Police Department it was around 12:30 a.m. when an officer tried to stop an SUV. The driver allegedly refused to stop, and HPD gave chase for about a mile before the SUV pulled over on Pitner Road near Roma Street in northwest Houston.

The men jumped out, and one of them fired shots at the officers. The duo then ran through an apartment complex to get away.

Police later found two guns dropped behind a dumpster, but the suspects were nowhere to be found.

Anyone with information on the identities of the wanted suspects is urged to contact HPD at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
