HEBRON, West Bank, May 11 (UPI) -- Officials said several people were injured in gunfire between protesters and police near the West Bank town of Hebron. No deaths were reported.

Protesters opened fire on a police station early Friday, two days after a woman was killed when police opened fire on the car her husband was using to avoid being stopped, Ma'an News Agency said. Police said they ordered the man to stop the car and he instead accelerated, "forcing police to open fire."

The clashes between protesters at the station injured seven people, officials said.

In a second incident Friday, gunmen opened fire on a Palestinian Authority police patrol in the nearby valley Wadi Sair. Five people were injured in that incident. There were conflicting reports that a police officer was among the casualties.
