A manhunt was underway in Texas on Sunday for a gunman who shot and killed a San Antonio police detective sitting in a squad car during a routine traffic stop outside the city's police headquarters, authorities said.

The shooting unfolded when the suspect pulled his car up behind the parked police cruiser, got out, walked to the patrol car and shot the detective in the head through the window as he was writing a ticket, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said.

The gunman then reached through the window, fired a second gunshot into the officer, got back in his vehicle and sped away, driving through the parking lot that serves the San Antonio Public Safety Headquarters on the western edge of downtown.
