UPDATE: CBS Austin published a statement in which Gov. Greg Abbott (R) addressed the shooting of the Cedar Park officers:

Our hearts are with the police officers who were injured while protecting the Cedar Park community this afternoon. We must never take for granted the service and sacrifice of our law enforcement officers, and the State of Texas stands ready to provide the support and resources needed to bring justice to those involved. I ask that all Texans join Cecilia and me in prayer for the these officers, and for the safety of all law enforcement officers across the state.

KHOU reported that the suspect who shot the officers is barricaded in a home off of Natalie Cove.

The Austin American-Statesman quoted an anonymous source saying three officers were shot.

Police are asking residents to “avoid Bagdad Road between Osage and New Hope.”

KVUE reported that the officers’ injuries appear to be non-life-threatening.
