(AP) — Authorities say a 37-year-old man will be charged with capital murder in the killing of a suburban Dallas police officer during a shootout in a supermarket parking lot.

Mesquite police say the suspected shooter, Jamie Jaramillo, remained hospitalized Monday in stable condition.

Police Chief David Gill says Officer Richard Houston was responding to a reported disturbance in the supermarket parking lot on Friday when Jaramillo pulled a gun and the two exchanged fire. He says Houston was shot twice and Jaramillo, of nearby Balch Springs, was shot once. A funeral for Houston, a married father of three, will be held Thursday.
