SAN ANTONIO (AP) - San Antonio police say a man suspected of shooting an officer has barricaded himself in a downtown motel.
The officer was shot in the head Monday and taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center but is expected to survive.
The suspect, armed with a rifle, has barricaded himself in a first-floor room of a two-story motel. SWAT negotiators are trying to communicate with him.
After officers responded to a family disturbance call, the suspect fired through the door.
Officers at the scene say the standoff has caused two downtown schools to be locked down until the situation is resolved.
Police have escorted about 12 people from the motel. An area around the motel has been cordoned off.
