Two Suspects Dead & A Third Injured After San Antonio Cop Gets Shot In The Hand
During a gunfire exchange, a San Antonio, Texas police officer was shot in the hand before killing two suspects and injuring a third. 
 
The police chief stated that the officer's body camera footage showed the cop pulling over a vehicle with three people in it around 11:30 AM. There was no audio from the footage but to the chief, it seemed like they were having a “casual" conversation with the driver until the driver pulled out a gun and began firing. He told reporters, "it was a very casual conversation from its appearance.”
 
This is when the officer was immediately struck in the hand. He then backed up to return shots at them. The two male passengers in the front were hit dying at the scene. The third female passenger was shot in the chest and taken to the hospital. No word on the suspects description. 
 
The police chief told reporters that several shots were fired from the truck. There was even a point where the officer had to reload his gun after it had a malfunction. 
 
This shooting comes a day after another SA cop killed another gunman in a parking garage around the SA International Airport. The shooter apparently opened fire at the cop before being killed.
