A manhunt is underway for a suspect in a store robbery who shot a police officer in southeast Texas.

Bryan police said in a statement that the officer was shot early Thursday after coming across the suspect about half an hour after the robbery at a gas station and convenience store in the city about 90 miles northwest of Houston.

The officer was wearing a ballistic vest and suffered minor injuries. He was treated at a hospital and released. Bryan police have not released the officer's name.

Police say the robbery took place when a group of people entered the store and one pulled out a firearm. They took some money and fled.
