2 San Antonio officers shot, seriously injured on domestic disturbance call

Two San Antonio police officers were shot and seriously wounded as they tried to stop a man from burning a home during a domestic dispute, authorities said.

The officers were shot at around 7:30 p.m. Thursday while answering a disturbance call on the city’s northeast side and were undergoing surgery, police said. There was no immediate word on their conditions.

At a news conference, Police Chief William McManus said a man who had gone to the home to retrieve his children argued with his wife, threatened to set the home ablaze and started to douse it with gasoline.

One officer has seven years with the department and the other has two years, the chief said.
