Hospital officials list a San Antonio officer in fair condition as he recovers from wounds received in a gunbattle with a suspect that fatally wounded the officer's partner.

A spokesman at San Antonio Military Medical Center offered the update Monday on Officer Julio Cavazos. Police officials say Cavazos faces a long recovery.

Investigators say Cavazos was shot Thursday as he and Officer Miguel Moreno stepped out of their patrol car to question a man about a vehicle break-in.

Moreno was shot in the head. He died Friday. San Antonio police say the gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head during the shootout. Cavazos was shot in the chin, with the bullet lodging in his chest.
