HARRIS COUNTY -

Authorities have arrested a man suspected of shooting a Houston police officer at his Cypress home.

The Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force arrested Nelson Diaz late Tuesday night.

Investigators said they got a tip that Diaz was the shooter who busted down the door at the officer’s home last Thursday.

That officer was shot in the leg during the incident. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Police said Diaz also had a warrant for aggravated assault in Georgia.

Officials said Diaz was one of two intruders during the home invasion. Police are still searching for the other suspect.
