A TEXAS cop was shot and killed in a cold-blooded ambush at a traffic light, according to published reports. Sgt. Kenneth Vann of the Bexar County Sheriff's Dept. was waiting at an intersection early Saturday when a white compact pulled up next to him and started shooting through the front passenger window. He was found dead in the driver's seat. Chief Deputy Sheriff Manuel Longoria told the Express-News that Vann was responding to a call for an accidental shooting.
Deputy Chief Dale Bennett said: "He did not have a chance to do anything, hit the emergency button on his radio, or even to defend himself. That car pulled up and started blasting, just like that. So where we are right now is that it looks like an ambush."
Cops say the 48-year-old police veteran died in a hail of bullets, likely from a high-caliber semiautomatic gun. Vann was hit nearly two dozen times.
Now, police in San Antonio have undertaken one of the area's biggest manhunts with more than 170 officers from a wide array of law enforcement agencies in a bid to nab the remorseless killer. So far police are saying little on a possible motive or any info on the killers. A $25,000 reward has been offered for any information leading to a capture. Vann's wife is also a sergeant in the sheriff's office and he also had two sons and a daughter.COP KILLING IN TEXAS
