A San Antonio police officer was injured and a home invasion suspect was killed early Wednesday during a shootout in the parking lot of an apartment complex on the city's Northwest Side.According to a news release from the San Antonio Police Department, an officer responded to a call around 12:05 a.m. at 6130 Ingram Road, where a woman said three men forced their way into her apartment and took some property before fleeing towards the back of the complex.
Two other officers arrived and went to look for the suspects, and found them inside a parked vehicle behind one of the apartment buildings, police said.
When one of the officers tried to take the driver into custody, a physical struggle ensued, police said.
The second officer tried to take the front seat passenger into custody, and that suspect also resisted, police said.
While both officers struggled with the two suspects, a third suspect emerged from the back seat of the vehicle and pulled out a handgun and opened fire on one of the officers, police said.
