The officer was at a family party at 1:50 a.m. when he heard shots fired on the street outside the residence on West Avenue 33rd at Cazador Street. He walked outside and witnessed a shooting in progress. The officer discharged his weapon and thought he struck one of the suspects, Alaniz said.

Ultimately, one man was struck in the leg, Alaniz said. He is in stable condition.
