WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Three suspects have been apprehended after a pursuit and an officer-involved shooting Wednesday evening. 

According to Waco police, the incident happened just after 9:30 p.m. near N. Seventh Street and Maryland Avenue. Police said officers were in pursuit of a stolen truck when what was believed to be four suspects exited the vehicle. Two suspects were caught in surrounding yards. 

The two suspects were identified as 23-year-old Donzavier Jamar Thompson and a 15-year-old girl. They were both charged with theft- stolen vehicle. 

Police said that one suspect, identified as 19-year-old Dravodric Broneshae Johnson, tried to steal a truck that was traveling in the area. That's when officers said the citizens fought back against the Johnson, one holding on to the truck and being dragged. 

Johnson then began to drive the truck toward officers, striking a patrol car in the process, which was then pushed into a crime scene unit vehicle. Waco police said officers did begin to shoot at the truck as it traveled toward them but did not strike the suspect. 

The suspect crashed the truck and was taken into custody. This suspect faces nine counts of aggravated assault against a peace officer charges, as well as one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of aggravated robbery.

The citizen that was dragged suffered injuries. No other details were reported on the condition of this citizen. 

Police say the fourth suspect is still at large.
