SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) -A man accused of firing at San Antonio police officers with a gun and a shotgun has been critically wounded in an exchange of gunfire.
Police responded to a family violence call around 9:20 Friday night at Bulverde Oaks Apartments. Chief William McManus says when the first officer arrived at the complex on Canyon Parkway, a woman on the balcony told him that her boyfriend had a knife and a gun. Then her boyfriend went out on the balcony and started shooting at the officer.
A second officer arrived and the 27-year-old suspect emerged from the breezeway and exchanged gunfire with the officers. McManus says the man was shot 3 to 5 times, but the wounds are not believed to be life-threatening. No officers were wounded.
The 22-year-old woman had facial injuries, and a two-month-old baby, who was in the apartment the whole time, was unharmed.
About a dozen vehicles in the parking lot were struck by bullets.
