Texas fugitive was shot dead by police after two weeks of manhunting

Police officers in Jardanton, a small town south of San Antonio, found Gonzalopez, 46, on a pickup truck allegedly stolen from his family on Thursday and disabled it on a spike strip. Texas Criminal Justice Spokesman Jason Clarke said at a press conference Thursday night that police had a gun battle with Lopez armed with an AR-15 assault-style rifle and pistol. “There is some information to guide us to believe that Gonzalo Lopez is the individual who invaded his dwelling and committed those murders,” Clark said.
