No charges expected in deputy's shooting

Report: Homeowner mistook Deputy Kristopher Saxon for burglar


SAN ANTONIO – Kristopher Saxon, 40, has been identified as the Bexar County Sheriff's Deputy who was wounded Wednesday night in what San Antonio police investigators believe was an accidental shooting.

Officer Matthew Porter, a spokesman for SAPD, said it did not appear that any charges would be filed against the woman who fired the shot, wounding Saxon in the shoulder.

A police report released Thursday morning detailed the events that led up to the shooting.

The report stated that Saxon, a 20-year veteran of the sheriff's office, was off-duty at the time.

It stated that he went to a home in the 2600 block of Grayson Way with his wife, a real estate agent who was planning to show the home to a client.

Saxon, his wife and the client arrived at the home around 8 p.m., two hours later than originally scheduled, the report stated.

They entered the home with a key his wife retrieved from a lockbox, and accidentally set off a burglar alarm in the process.

The report stated that the homeowner told police she was in the shower at the time and grabbed her gun when she heard the alarm.

She told investigators she shouted a warning, then fired when she saw Saxon, wounding him in the shoulder, the report stated.

He, along with his wife and the real estate client, ran out of the home and called 911, the report stated.

Saxon was treated at a hospital and later released.

The homeowner, whose identity was withheld by police, did not answer a knock on her door Thursday morning.

Police said the shooting is still under investigation but appears to have been an accident.
