BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – A 64-year-old child sex assault suspect who was hospitalized Wednesday night after a deputy-involved shooting on the Northeast Side was identified.

Randy Fay Stokes is charged with aggravated sexual assault with a child and aggravated assault of a public servant.

BCSO said the Fugitive Apprehension Unit was looking for Stokes on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

When deputies confronted him at a home near Channecy Springs and Parton Lane, Stokes had his hands in his pocket and said he had a gun, BCSO said.

Deputies attempted to subdue him with a stun gun, but his jacket was too thick to take him down, officials said.

Stokes then took out his handgun and pointed it at deputies, according to BCSO.

Officials said one of the deputies then shot at Stokes twice, hitting him once in the hip.

Officials say Stokes’ injuries were not serious. He was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in unknown conditions.

The deputy who shot at the suspect will be placed on administrative leave and then administrative duty pending the results of the investigation.
