SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio's police chief says four officers shot while serving a warrant are expected to recover, including one still in surgery after taking a bullet beneath his protective armor.

William McManus said Thursday the officer most seriously wounded during the drug search likely faces a long recovery but is expected to be survive.

The shooting happened when an 11-member SWAT team approached a house in a blue-collar San Antonio neighborhood. McManus said he counted 14 bullets shot through front door after the officers were ambushed with gunfire from an assault rifle.

Police identified the suspect as William Carroll. McManus said the 29-year-old will be charged with four counts of attempted capital murder.
