HOUSTON (1080 KRLD) - A Houston policeman is in the hospital while the man who shot him is dead this morning. 

It all started with a carjacking. But when the stolen SUV ran out of gas, the four carjackers ran for it until they ran into a man who turned out to be a priest. They tried to murder him, aiming a pistol at him and pulling the trigger. Not once but twice. Both times, though, it mis-fired so they settled for beating the priest and robbing him.

Shortly, though, officers got on their tail and a gunbattle erupted.

One officer was shot and is said to be in "guarded condition."

Other officers returned fire, killing the gunman right there.

Two of the other carjackers were arrested and the fourth is on the run this morning.
