SNYDER, Texas (AP) - Authorities in West Texas say a police officer was shot in the head and remains hospitalized in critical condition after an early morning incident in which the suspect was killed.
Snyder police say Cpl. Darrell Campbell and another officer responded to a call of shots fired about 12:35 a.m. Tuesday, when the man they were talking to shot Campbell. Police say the other officer then fatally shot the suspect, whose name was not immediately released.
State Trooper Phillip "Sparky" Dean told The Associated Press on Tuesday that a Snyder police officer was wounded and rushed to a Lubbock hospital.
