(HOUSTON) A Houston school district officer reportedly fires shots at Barbara Jordan High School after two burglary suspects rush him with their vehicle.

The incident happened in the school parking lot at 5800 Eastex Freeway, around 8:26 a.m. Thursday morning.

The officer saw two people suspected of breaking into a vehicle and pursued the suspects. The officer ordered the suspects to exit the vehicle, and that is when they attempted to run over the officer, according to Houston Independent School District.

The incident is under investigation. The officer who discharged his weapon will be placed on administrative duty until the investigation is complete.
