The officer was not struck and one suspect is in custody. Police are looking for 2 other suspects.
"We believe that the suspects are armed and dangerous," said North Las Vegas police Officer Aaron Patty.
The incident began around 9 a.m. Police say the suspects initially went to a home to commit an unknown crime, which led to the shooting.
"We don't believe this is a random act of violence," Patty said.
Police say the remaining 2 suspects stole another vehicle, a gray GMC Sierra pickup truck that was pulling a landscaping trailer.
All roads have reopened in the area.
"If you do see a gray GMC pick up truck pulling a black landscaping trailer, do not contact the people inside the vehicle," Patty said.
