DALLAS — Dallas police say an officer fired his weapon at three suspects at an apartment complex in the 8900 block of Senate Street on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said the men, who were allegedly involved in a robbery that happened several weeks ago, were traced to the St. Francis Apartments.

The three men ran from officers, police said, and one of the suspects allegedly pulled out a gun and aimed it an officer.

Dallas police fired one shot; no one was struck.

All three of the men were taken into custody for questioning.
