UPDATE: From earlier post

I knew the patrol supervisor.

He was a fine officer.

Please catch the bastards that did this.

Deputy shot and killed

A veteran Bexar County Sheriff's deputy was apparently ambushed and killed in a hail of semi-automatic gunfire while stopped at a traffic signal early Saturday.

The deputy, Sgt. Kenneth Gary Vann, had been on the force for 24 ½ years and was a patrol supervisor, said Bexar County Deputy Chief Dale Bennett.

Vann, 48, was in a marked unit stopped at a red light at Rigsby Avenue and SE Loop 410 on the city's East Side when a car pulled up alongside his and opened fire with no warning, officials said.
