SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Police in San Antonio say an officer and a suspect were wounded in a shootout early Tuesday morning.
Police Chief William McManus says the officer had been searching for a stolen vehicle when he encountered a vehicle with stolen tags on it. McManus says the officer tried to pull over the vehicle but the driver fled, eventually crashing near an apartment complex.
McManus says a man from the vehicle hid behind a wall and opened fire on the officer, who returned fire. The police chief says the officer was struck once in the shoulder and the man was hit twice.
