Four South Texas police officers have been put on administrative duty after the fatal shooting of a robbery suspect.
San Antonio police say no plainclothes officers were hurt Wednesday night when they returned fire and killed the suspect. He was sought on warrants for several business holdups this year.
Police say detectives traced the man to a motel. Police say an officer spotted the suspect in the parking lot.
Police Chief William McManus says the officers displayed their badges and identified themselves but the suspect refused to stop, pulled a handgun and fired at least once.
McManus says four officers returned fire. The suspect died at the scene. His name was not immediately released.
Police say the suspect had additional ammunition with him.
