Police investigating deadly officer-involved shooting
Officer shoots, kills suspect during struggle
A man is dead after he shot at a police officer that was attempting to search him.
Police said after the suspect opened fire, another officer on the scene shot him and killed him.
The incident happened around 10 p.m. on Friday night in the 5100 block of Galahad Road on the city's northeast side.
That suspect has now been identified as 32 year-old Christopher Fredette.
Chief William McManus with the San Antonio Police Department said officers were called to the scene for a family disturbance, where the 32-year-old suspect was being aggressive towards his parents.
McManus said two officers removed the suspect from the house, while another officer stayed inside to talk with the family.
McManus said while the two officers outside attempted to search the suspect, he pulled a gun from his waistband and opened fire, hitting one of the officers in the leg.
The police officer inside the house heard the shots, rushed out and fired at least one shot at the suspect.
"While officers were struggling with him, one of the officers was shot in the leg," said McManus. "The officer, who was inside, came out, fired, struck the suspect and killed him on the scene."
The suspect who was killed has been identified as Christopher Fredette.
As per procedure, the officer who fired the shot will be placed on administrative duty while the SAPD Officer Involved Shooting Team investigates the incident. He is a 4-year-veteran.
The officer, who was shot in the leg, is a 2-year-veteran. He was taken to SAMMC in stable condition and is expected to be okay.
