TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – CBS 11 News has confirmed a North Texas law enforcement official has been shot.

The officer and at least one other person were both shot in a residential neighborhood in Saginaw. The location of the shooting is just a few doors from the home of the 6-year-old girl found murdered earlier this month.

The officer was transported to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth. CBs 11 News reporter Elizabeth Dinh ‏is at the scene and says the officer was shot in the upper leg and is in critical condition.

Another person, a 17-year-old was reportedly shot in the head and taken to John Peter Smith Hospital. That individual is also said to be in critical condition.

Police aren't giving many details, but told CBS 11 a search warrant was being served at a residence in regard to the Alanna Gallagher murder investigation. A neighbor on Babbling Brook Drive told CBS 11 she heard three shots around 8:45 a.m. Apparently officers from several North Texas police departments went to serve the warrant.

Alanna Gallagher's body was found bound and wrapped in a tarp on July 1. Police investigating the murder, along with the FBI, soon put up information on digital billboards across North Texas, highlighting a $10,000 reward for information in the case.

Just last week there were a number of events surrounding the murder investigation. First, a memorial setup to honor Alanna and a car in the family driveway were torched. The incident happened in the early morning hours of July 19. Later that same day police released home surveillance photos of two vehicles. The photos of the cars were taken around the time Alanna's body was found.
