UPDATE: One of the officers has died. Governor Abbott has released a statement:


Two officers of the Houston Police Department have been shot at a scene they had been called to on Tuesday morning around 9:30am.

The two officers were in the southwest area of Houston, near Holly Hall and El Mundo, and have been rushed to the hospital. At first, it was thought that only one police officer had been shot.

According to the local ABC News affiliate ABC 13, a suspect in the shooting was arrested and also taken to hospital.

Several other police officers have the area surrounded, as the area is not considered to be secure at this time. Traffic is blocked on Holly Hall, and area residents are asked to please stay away until the incident is resolved.

Violent incidents have increased in Houston in the past several months, including the Friday murder of an arson investigator with the Houston Fire Department, Lemuel "DJ" Bruce.

In the Friday incident, the investigator got into an argument with the suspect, who then pulled out a gun and shot him.  Bruce died of his injuries at hospital an hour later. The suspect also died, apparently by shooting himself with his own weapon at the scene.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo is expected to hold a press conference with more information at approximately 12:30pm Central Standard Time.
