SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Police say a man fatally shot by a San Antonio police officer at a gas station was a sexual assault suspect who pulled a rifle on officers.

The Bexar County medical examiner identified the man who was shot Wednesday as 34-year-old Raul Casas Campos.

Police Chief William McManus and County Sheriff Javier Salazar said officers with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force were following Campos when pulled into the gas station at a Walmart. McManus said Campos pulled out a rifle as officers approached the vehicle and a San Antonio officer shot him.

The officer's name has not been released.
