Man Charged After Police Open Fire

By Bill O'Neil

A 42-year old man faces weapons and evading arrest charges after an altercation with San Antonio Police leads an officer to open fire. 

It all began at around 10:30 Tuesday Night--when officers spotted Bryant Price throwing an object at a vehicle as he was illegally crosssing Fredricksburg Riad. From there, a chase began--with police catching up with Price a short distance away near Mocking Bird Lane. That's where investigators said a struggle began--with one officer soon noticing a handgun in Price's waistband.  

"This officer who saw that--a nine year veteran--yelled out gun. At this point, the first officer disengagbed from the suspect, and the nine year veteran was compelled to use deadly force, and fired a single shot" said SAPD's Officer Roger Zuniga. 

That shot missed Price--who then began to comply with the officers--and was taken in to custody without further incident. No officers were hurt in the altercation, though Pirce suffered some minor injuries in the midst of the struggle. As is standard procedure, the officer who fired the shot has been placed on temporary administrative duty.
