Man suspected of shooting officers presumed dead

RIO GRANDE, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Authorities say a man suspected of shooting two Rio Grande, Texas police officers is "presumed dead."

Police say he died after police had to ram into the front door of the home where the suspect was barricaded.

They then filled the house with tear gas and opened fire.

A bomb squad still has to clear the house of booby-trapped explosives the suspect said he'd rigged.

Police say the two wounded officers and six others pinned down by gunfire have been rescued.
