DALLAS -- Three Dallas police officers who suffered minor injuries after a man tried to rob a Sam's Club store in the city's Red Bird area were released from the hospital early Saturday, police said.
A man with a handgun entered the Sam's Club in the 2900 block of West Wheatland Road near Interstate 20 about 9:15 p.m. Friday and pointed the gun at off-duty police Officer Alph Coleman.
As the man led Officer Coleman at gunpoint to the store's accounting office to get money, the building's alarm went off. The man then led Officer Coleman out of the store, still holding a gun to his neck, police said.
Officer Coleman thought the man was about to shoot him, so he quickly tried to grab the gun. He missed and fell to the ground.
The man fired several shots, and Officer Coleman shot back at least three times. Neither person was hit, police said.
The man then fled and disappeared into a nearby apartment building. Officers and a police helicopter searched the area Friday night but were unable to find him. On Saturday evening, he was still at large.
Meanwhile, two officers on their way to respond to the robbery were injured when their car flipped near Camp Wisdom and Houston School roads in southeast Oak Cliff, about six miles from the Sam's Club.
Senior Cpl. Oscar Carter and Officer Forrest Carr were taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center. Doctors treated the officers for minor cuts and bruises and released them shortly after midnight Saturday.
Officer Coleman also was treated and released from Methodist Dallas Medical Center.
