Shoplifting Suspect Fights Officer

A shoplifting case ends with an officer and the suspect trading blows in a Gordman's parking lot. It happened near 90th and Military.

Police said an off-duty officer tried to stop a man leaving the store with a cart full of items he didn't pay for.

They fought and the man got away.

The officer called for help and police set up a perimeter. A police dog tracked the suspect to an area just a few blocks away and bit him.

Both the officer and suspect were hospitalized.

A man and woman who left the store with the suspect have been brought in for questioning.
