Off-Duty Texas Officer Involved in Shooting

An off-duty Windcrest Police Officer shot a suspect who ran into him with a car Saturday, police said.


The man was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center with what police considered non life-threatening injuries.

Minutes after that call, an SAPD patrol officer spotted the vehicle involved in the shooting and attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver instead accelerated, with the officer in pursuit.

Porter said the driver bailed out of the car at the intersection of Emil Street and W.W. White Road. He was taken into custody after a brief foot chase, along with a woman who remained in the car, Porter said.

The Windcrest officer who was hit by the suspects' vehicle was not seriously injured.
