AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - Authorities say two suspects have been arrested in the theft of ammunition from a Texas trooper’s patrol SUV parked outside the officer’s home.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says one suspect was arrested Thursday in Amarillo, where the burglary happened hours earlier. Lt. Bryan Witt says the other suspect was captured in Canyon, where a car believe used by a fleeing man was found.

Amarillo police say the incident happened Thursday morning as the trooper was heading for work, walked toward his marked SUV and found a man inside. The trooper ordered the man to surrender.

The man jumped into a nearby car and sped away as the trooper opened fire. There were no immediate reports of anyone hurt.

Witt says the suspect threw out the ammunition while fleeing.
