Man fatally shoots self after opening fire on San Antonio police
Suspect fled police after alleged domestic disturbance on Clovis, shot self on Moursund
SAN ANTONIO – A man opened fire on San Antonio police after a reported domestic disturbance, then fatally shot himself early Thursday morning.
According to investigators, shortly before 2:30 a.m., officers responded to a home on the 800 block of Clovis for a report of the domestic violence with shots fired.
Officers located a suspect vehicle a couple of blocks away from the home and tried to stop it. The suspect initially refused to pull over and fled from officers, but then stopped on Moursund Boulevard near Loop 410.
"As officers were trying to give commands to get the suspect in custody, the suspect fired a single shot at the officers," said San Antonio police spokesman Officer Roger Zuniga.
None of the officers were hit, but the bullet did hit a patrol car.
Officers ducked for cover and then heard a second gunshot.
"At this point, officers started to approach the vehicle when there was no movement for a few minutes, and found the suspect apparently had a self-inflicted gunshot wound," Zuniga said.
They discovered the suspect had shot himself once in the head.
The suspect, a man in his early 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.
No officers were injured from the first gunshot fired and no injuries were reported from the call on Clovis. No officers fired any shots during the incident, Zuniga said.
