New Lenox, Ill.- Two New Lenox police officers were shot and wounded and a motorist was killed when they returned fire Thursday night at a traffic stop outside a high school, officials said.

New Lenox Police Chief Daniel Martin said the officers were pursuing a vehicle on Lincoln Highway about 7:45 p.m. and stopped it in the parking lot of Lincoln-Way Central High School. The driver emerged and drew a gun, he said. "He began firing on the officers. The officers returned fire," Martin said.
