ANDREWS - 3 DPS agents are back on the job after a shooting a woman who tried to run them over.

Justin House, Kerry Vore and Jerrod Bell were placed on leave while Texas Rangers investigated a shooting in an Andrews grocery store parking lot.

Several weeks ago they tried to arrest 19-year-old Eric Carrasco and 26-year-old Ashley Grado on a drug charge.

After learning she was talking to DPS agents we're told Grado jumped in her car and tried to run them over.

The agents opened fire and Grado crashed. Grado was taken to the hospital and has since been released.

She and Carrasco both face drug charges while Grado also faces assault on a peace officer.
