DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police say an officer has shot at a robbery suspect who he later subdued using a Taser.

Police say the suspect fled into the woods after an officer responded to a robbery report Wednesday night at a Family Dollar store in Dallas.

Deputy Chief Gil Garza tells The Dallas Morning News the male suspect refused to leave the woods. He says the officer shot at the man because he believed he was reaching for a weapon. The shots missed.

Police say the officer struggled with the man and eventually shot him with a Taser before arresting him. No charges have been reported.

Garza says a handgun was recovered at the scene.

The identities of the man and the officer haven’t been released. No injuries were reported.
