A Texas police officer was killed and another was wounded in a shooting early Saturday.
The incident happened at about 4:30 a.m. when Austin police responded to an undisclosed call at a house, the Austin American-Statesman reports. A SWAT operation ensued, but it's unclear what led to that.
Two people were found dead inside the house. A suspect also was shot and killed.
"I am heartbroken and praying for the family of the officer who we have lost and for (a second injured) officer and his family as we lift him up and hope he is OK," said Mayor Kirk Watson, who was at the hospital with police officials.
Officers in cruisers and motorcycles, along with ambulances and fire vehicles, led a procession from the hospital.
"Our hearts are heavy this morning with the news of one of our brothers with APD having been shot and killed in the line of duty," the Austin Police Retired Officers Association said in a statement. "Please pray for his family all the APD family and for the speedy recovery of a second officer wounded in the same incident."
Saturday's incident marks the first time in a decade that an Austin police officer has been killed in the line of duty. Officer Jaime Padron was shot and killed why chasing a suspect in April 2012.
