SAPD Officers Fired On

By Bill O'Neil

A man is dead--apparently taking his own life--after firing a shot at San Antonio Police Officers. 

It all began at around 2:30 THursday Morning--with the report of a domestic disturbance with shots fired--at a home on Clovis. Officers found the suspect in a car a few blocks away. 

"The vehicle initially refused to stop--and later fled from officers" said SAPD's Officer Roger Zuniga. He told 550 KTSA News a short chase then took place. 

"The suspect vehicle then stopped at Moursund Road--near Loop 410. As officers were attempting to take the suspect in to custody, the suspect fired a shot at officers--striking the officer's vehicle" Zuniga said. 

Officers then took cover--and hear a second shot. After waiting  short amount of time--they discovered the man in his 40's dead from an apaprent self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

No officers were hurt during the altercation--and none fired thier weapons.
