COMMERCE, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a gunman has been killed and an off-duty officer injured in a shootout outside a Walmart store in the east Texas city of Commerce.
Commerce spokeswoman Marty Cunningham says police received a call Sunday about shots being fired from a car in nearby Greenville, about 50 miles northeast of Dallas.
Cunningham says the suspect exchanged gunfire with Commerce police just outside the city limits before driving to the Walmart. Cunningham says the suspect entered the store carrying "a long gun and a pistol."
She says an off-duty officer from another agency followed the suspect out of the store, where shots were exchanged and the suspect killed. The officer was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.
