A search is underway in and near Balcones Heights after a police officer there was nearly run over by a car.
We’ve been told it all happened as a man was trying to steal a car, and nearly ran down the officer in the process of making a getaway near Loop 410 and I-10.
“He then fled on foot after wrecking his car” the City’s Lorenzo Nastasi told KTSA News.
Much of the focus in the search for that driver has been at an apartment complex near Basswood and Dewhurst. Two schools in the area, Dellview Elementary and St. Gregory the Great Catholic School were placed on either lock down or lock out status.
San Antonio Police are assisting with the investigation.
