DPS Trooper Shot in San Antonio

Authorities say a Texas trooper has been shot and wounded while pursuing a suspect.

The trooper reportedly pulled a man over Sunday afternoon in Guadalupe County. The Department of Public Safety says the man gave false information and a scuffle began as the trooper tried to arrest him.

The suspect got back in his vehicle and fled west into San Antonio.

DPS spokesman Trooper Deon Cockrell says a department helicopter spotted the suspect, and the trooper was able to track him back down and pursue him. At one point, the suspect drove onto a highway and started traveling in the wrong direction.

The suspect eventually stopped his vehicle and got out. Cockrell says the man and the trooper exchanged gunfire and were both hit.

Details about their conditions weren't immediately released.
