Officer shot, suspect killed in struggle for gun in NE San Antonio


San Antonio Police officials confirm an officer and another man were apparently shot in an incident late Friday evening. According to SAPD, the officer was shot in the leg after a struggle for a gun in the front yard of a house on San Antonio's northeast side. The other man, a 31-year-old was killed. San Antonio Police investigators say the incident apparently began as a family disturbance call. The 31-year-old man was reportedly arguing with his father. Officers arrested the man and attempted to pat him down when he pulled out a gun. Investigators said two officers and the suspect fought over the gun when the 31-year-old grabbed the weapon and fired several shots hitting one of the officers in the leg. A third officer who was inside the residence came out and fired on the suspect, killing him.

The injured officer appeared to be sitting up and alert in the back of an ambulance.  The officer was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. While his name wasn't released, we know he is a 2-year veteran of the force.
