The DPS says the trooper is recovering well from a gunshot wound to the arm. Montelongo and the trooper shot each other at the end of a chase along I-10 on Sunday afternoon. The chase began when Montelongo fled from a traffic stop in Guadalupe County.
The pursuit entered Bexar County not long after.
