NORTHWEST HOUSTON -- Quite the scene in west Houston, early Thursday morning.  A stabbing leads to a police chase, officer involved shooting, and crash.

It all started at a nightclub off of Witte Road  where there was a reported stabbing.

When officers got there  the suspect jumped into a parked patrol car and took off, nearly hitting a police officer.

In return, one officer opened fire  and missed as the suspect sped off.

The suspect eventually drove the patrol car to northwest Houston. He ran into a utility pole and crashed into a ditch.

But he still didn't stop! He took off running and was caught a short time later.

The suspect suffered minor injuries. No officers were hurt.

Police are investigating.
