The man who shot an Odessa Police Officer has been arrested, according to the Texas Ranger Division.

Early Wednesday morning, three Odessa Police Officers responded to a shots fired call. When they arrived, police said a man started shooting at them. An officer and the shooter were hit in the gunfight. The officer and shooter were transported to the hospital with non- life threatening injuries.

Investigators said Godwin had been shot in the arm. Godwin was released from the hospital Thursday then taken to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center.
