Suspect fired gunshots toward deputy, K9 officer at Rosedale Park, BCSO says

Deputy and K9 were uninjured in the shooting

SAN ANTONIO – A suspect fired shots at a Bexar County deputy and his K9 while they were training in Rosedale Park Saturday night, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting occurred around 11 p.m. as the deputy, who is in the gang unit, was training his K9.

Preliminary information from the sheriff’s office said the deputy heard shots fired and realized he was being shot at.

The deputy immediately called for help and park police were able to track down a man in the area. He ran from police but was quickly tased.

Authorities believe he was under the influence of drugs and said he will be charged with evading arrest.

It’s still unclear if the man who ran from the police is the same person who fired the shots.

Police said they are planning to search the park for a weapon.

The investigation is ongoing.
