A shop clerk in Fort Worth shot an undercover policewoman who entered his shop wearing a ski mask and brandishing a gun.
Officials originally denied that the police officer was wearing a balaclava, contradicting eyewitness accounts. They also said that earlier reports that she was wearing a bullet-proof vest are incorrect.
The shop-owner's son says that the policewoman displayed no clear identification that she was an officer. The officer had entered the store to arrest a drug dealer. The officer is in serious condition at a local hospital.
