Suspected Shoplifter Killed in Crash

A man is dead after running in to Tuesday Morning rush hour traffic on the Southwestside.

It happened on Loop 410 near Ray Ellison Drive.

“The victim here had allegedly stolen some property from the Walmart nearby–and, was running from the security officers at the time” SAPD’s Officer Douglas Greene told KTSA News.

That man was rushed to University Hospital where he died a short time later.

“It is my understanding that some of the (stolen) property was recovered” Greene said.

Traffic was snarled in the area for several hours–but all lanes have since re-opened.
