A traffic stop turned into a fatal shooting on Christmas Eve when a gunman killed a police officer and bystander in the parking lot of a Houston body shop, police said.

The confrontation followed a chase that began shortly before 9am Monday when the suspect sped off in his car rather than pull over as an officer had requested, Houston police spokesman John Cannon said.

As the suspect fled, he sideswiped a white truck, which also took off after him, he said.
