Elmer Manzano Bio – Elmer Manzano Wiki
A longtime Houston police officer was killed and a second officer, a teenager and the storage gunman were all wounded during a gun battle over domestic property Tuesday morning, police say.
Acevedo said officers arrived at the apartment in southwest Houston at about 8 a.m. Tuesday where they met a woman who said she was moving out and needed to retrieve her belongings, but that her estranged husband would not let her in their apartment.
Officials said the woman had tried to retrieve her property twice before over the weekend, with the assistance of police, but that there was no one home.
About an hour and a half later, the woman’s 14-year-old son opened the apartment door and saw 51-year-old Elmer Manzano holding a gun. He told police the man was armed and it was then that Manzano allegedly came outside and began shooting at the officers, Acevedo said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.
