    DURHAM (WTVD) -- Durham police say a man fired shots at one of their officers Thursday night. It happened in the area of Lakeland Street and Truman Street around 10 p.m.

    A department spokesperson said Officer J.T. West was sitting in his marked patrol car working on a report when he saw two suspicious men coming up from behind his car near an abandoned apartment building.

    West got out of his car to speak to the men, but before he could say a word, one of them pulled a handgun from his waistband and fired six shots at the officer. One of the bullets struck the police vehicle.

    West returned fire, getting off two shots as he ran for cover across the street. West dove behind a staircase in the abandoned apartment complex, injuring his wrist as he fell.

    West called for backup, and a police dog was called in to track the two suspects. The track ended on South Alston Street with no sign of the men.

    Police say they don't know if West's bullets hit the gunman or the man with him. Area hospitals have been put on alert.

    The man who fired the gun was described as a black male, 18 to 25 years old, approximately 6 feet tall with a skinny build. He was wearing an oversized black hoodie. The second suspect was described as a black male, 18 to 25 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing 180 to 200 pounds. He was wearing a light-colored jacket.

    Officer West was treated at the hospital for his injured wrist and released.

    Joshua Lassiter works as a crossing guard at an elementary school nearby. He said he's frustrated with recent attacks on police.

    "Whether you think you're in the right or not you still respect them because they got to do their job," he said. "It's getting critical. It needs to stop."

    Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator G. Silla at (919) 560-4415, ext. 29310 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.

    Bunch of phuckers. Is that protocol for the officer to get out of the car to approach them?

    Can't he just shoot them through the window and then ask for ID. While they're laying on the ground?

    You are at a massive tactical disadvantage whilst in a car. Being mobile and having options is where it's at.

    Now running them over is always a satisfying option as well.

    If I were the conspiracy theory type, I'd say the govt and media want a race war.
    This is all DIRECTLY caused by the media and elected officials validating those "protesters" in ferguson.
    As soon as the narrative was "unarmed teen" and "police injustice" even though it was all bullshit, you were putting a target on the back of every cop. Which will lead to MORE tension between police and community. Eventually escalating into lord-knows-what.
    I tip my hat to the architects of our downfall.

    This feels like a war where out General (di blassio) is working for the other side. I think he should have an accident.

    Why the fuck isn't anyone concerned that our police cars don't have bulletproof glass?

    I can't tell if you're serious or not... My post was sarcasm, That was what a news reporter said about the Michael brown shooting, "they were cigarillos the officer could have just drive away"
