The Beaumont Police Department has released limited details about an officer involved shooting over the weekend. It occurred at about 7:00 Saturday evening on the Lindbergh Street Bridge over Interstate 10.

According to a press release, officers responded to a welfare concern at that location and once on scene they tried to de-escalate the situation.

However, the press release states that a person drove a vehicle toward officers, injuring one. The press release said that officers fired shots at the driver who received non-life threatening injuries.

Both the officer and the suspect were transported to a Beaumont hospital for treatment.

No other information was released.
