Three police officers in Texas were shot by a suspect while responding to a call of a suicidal person Wednesday evening, police said. 

The suspect fired at the Flower Mound Police Department officers about an hours after they arrived at his home around 7 p.m. local time, responding to a 911 call, police said. Flower Mound is a community of around 76,000 residents, about 29 miles northwest of central Dallas.

Two of the officers were taken to a hospital in stable condition and the third officer was cleared at the scene. 

The two officers were later released from the hospital, police said after midnight, WFAA-TV in Dallas reported. 

The suspect had been forced to give his guns to the police department over a previous separate incident but they were returned last month, WFAA reported.
