San Antonio Officer Wounded in Shooting, 1 Dead: Police

Authorities say a police officer is in serious condition after a fatal gunfight outside an apartment complex in San Antonio.

Officers responded early Wednesday to a disturbance call at the complex where investigators believed a home invasion may have occurred.

One officer confronted three suspects in a car and began struggling with the driver. A back-seat passenger got out of the car and began firing, striking the officer at least once, according to William McManus, San Antonio police chief.

McManus said it appeared the wounded officer and at least one other officer returned fire, killing the alleged gunman.

The chief said the injured officer, a four-year department veteran, underwent surgery for a stomach wound.

The car's driver and the second passenger were taken into custody.
