Houston, Texas – Paramedics with Cypress Creek EMS were the target of an overnight attack, according to Major Mike Lee with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The paramedics sustained minor injuries.
Major Lee says that investigators have identified a potential suspect and that criminal charges are pending.
Cypress Creek EMS posted the following statement to Twitter, Saturday morning – “Great police work @HCSOTexas. Clearly this senseless act could have had much worse results, so we hope the perpetrator is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
