A Dallas police officer has been shot while responding to a call about a domestic dispute.

Sgt. Shelley Johnston confirmed the officer had been shot Saturday while responding to a call in the northern part of the city. She says he is being treated at Baylor University Medical Center.

The Dallas Police Department later announced on its official Twitter account that Officer Joshua Burns was shot when he approached a suspect, 20-year-old Rakeem Perkins, in his car. Police say that Perkins fled on foot after Burns was shot and has not yet been arrested. Police warn he is armed and dangerous.

Burns is in stable condition and his injuries are not life-threatening.
