Two men were killed and a woman and a San Antonio police officer were wounded in a shootout Friday following a routine traffic stop. About 11:30 a.m. Friday, an officer stopped a pickup truck containing three occupants for an undetermined reason on a street on the city's West Side, Police Chief William McManus said. The officer's body camera recorded a few minutes of what appeared to be a casual conversation between the officer and the truck's occupants until the driver flashed a handgun and shot the officer in the hand, McManus said. The officer returned fire while retreating, killing the male driver and a male passenger and wounding a female passenger, he said. None of the identities of those involved have been released. The woman was taken to a hospital, where her condition was not known. The incident came one day after a man sought for shooting at busy U.S. 281 from a northern San Antonio flyover overpass was shot and killed hours later by a police officer after the man opened fire outside a San Antonio International Airport terminal.
