BULVERDE, Texas (AP) - Police say a South Texas sheriff’s deputy and a suspect threatening to kill himself have been shot in an exchange of gunfire on a street.

The Comal County deputy and the suspect were transported to a hospital following Thursday night’s shootings in Bulverde (bol-VER’-dee).

Names of the deputy and the suspect weren’t immediately released. A sheriff’s statement Friday says the deputy should recovery. No information was released on the suspect’s condition.

A police statement says officers attempted to talk to the suspect for several minutes, while taking cover as he walked toward them.

Officers attempted several unspecified tactics, without success, before the suspect opened fire - wounding a deputy wearing a protective vest. Police and deputies returned fire, shooting the suspect several times.

Bulverde is 20 miles north of San Antonio.
