September 5, 2006 -- Houston police are searching for a suspect who opened fire on two Houston police officers at 4100 Maury about 3 a.m. today (Sept. 5).

HPD Officer C.M. Holloway, sworn in as an officer in July of 2006, returned fire after the suspect fired numerous rounds at officers. His partner, Officer A. Guzman Jr., sworn in as an officer in August of 2000, did not fire his weapon. Neither officer, assigned to the Central Patrol Division, was injured.

HPD officers on routine patrol observed a moving vehicle without headlights. Officers saw the vehicle stopped in the 4100 block of Maury and initiated a traffic stop. The suspect got out of the driver's side door and began shooting at officers. Officer Holloway returned fire at the suspect, who continued to fire at officers as he fled on foot. Additional officers conducted an extensive search of the area; however, the suspect was not located and remains at-large. There was no evidence that the suspect was shot during the exchange of gunfire.
