Man shot by Texas trooper dies, wounded officer recovering
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Authorities say a man who shot and wounded a Texas state trooper before a trooper shot him has died.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Deon Cockrell says 33-year-old Ernest Manuel Montelongo, of San Antonio, died Monday at a hospital. He says the trooper who was wounded Sunday should recover.
Authorities say a trooper stopped Montelongo's car in Guadalupe County for a traffic violation, and he gave a false name and sped away.
A DPS helicopter located him in neighboring Bexar (bayr) County. Two other troopers helped block the car. Cockrell says Montelongo shot one of them before one of the troopers shot Montelongo.
Cockrell says he doesn't know which trooper shot Montelongo.
