LANCASTER, Texas (AP) -- A police officer and two other men, including the son of Dallas' police chief, were killed in shootings at a suburban Dallas apartment complex, authorities said.

The officer was responding to a reported domestic disturbance around 6 p.m. at the apartment complex in Lancaster, just south of Dallas, when the call was upgraded to shots fired, police spokesman Sgt. Derek Clark said. When the officer arrived, an exchange of gunfire erupted and the officer was killed.

His name hasn't been released, but Lancaster Police Chief Keith Humphrey said late Sunday that he was a 37-year-old father of two and a five-year police veteran.
