Chief McManus says man shot to death by SAPD officer during standoff on far northeast side

San Antonio, Texas – A standoff between a resident and a neighbor ended in a deadly shooting on the back street of the Northeast Side, leaving a 22-year-old suspect dead. According to SAPD Chief William McManus, the incident happened around 9:30 pm on Saturday in the 15600 Knollhollow block.

The police were summoned to the location after receiving a report that the suspect had threatened a neighbor. When officers arrived, they encountered the suspect entering and exiting the house several times, brandishing a long pistol.

The SAPD engaged in a negotiation with the suspect, but the situation quickly escalated. Eventually, the suspect sought cover behind one of the SAPD patrol cars while he was still holding the gun. McManus stated that the suspect pointed a gun at the policemen on the street, resulting in the officer firing a single shot and hitting him in the shoulder.

After the shooting, the police applied a tourniquet to the suspect before rushing him to the district hospital. As of now, there is no information about his condition, and there are no other reported injuries.

The veteran officer responsible for shooting the suspect is a 27-year veteran of the department and will be placed on administrative leave until the case is heard by the district attorney’s office. At this time, information regarding the suspect and possible charges are limited.
