    SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Two San Antonio police officers were wounded in a shootout with a suspect on a street just north of the city's downtown section. One of the officers was left in "grave, grave condition" and is "not expected to survive," CBS affiliate KENS-TV reports.

He said the two officers were patrolling the neighborhood when they spotted two people with whom they wanted to speak.
