Man wielding gun shot in leg by officer at North Side apartment complex, SAPD Chief McManus says

Incident occurred just before midnight at apartments in 9800 block of Colonnade Boulevard

SAN ANTONIO – An investigation is underway after a San Antonio police officer shot and wounded a man at an apartment complex on the city’s North Side overnight.

The incident occurred just before midnight at an apartment complex in the 9800 block of Colonnade Boulevard, not far from Interstate 10 and Wurzbach Road.

According to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus, officers had arrived at the apartment complex and saw a man jump out of a second story window from one of the buildings. That’s when, McManus said, as the officer approached the man he pulled out a gun and the officer shot the man in the leg.

“He pulls a weapon and reportedly points it at her. She fires one round, striking the suspect in the leg,” McManus said.

The wounded man was taken by ambulance to an area hospital, where he’s expected to recover.

Police said before the shooting, the man had allegedly assaulted a woman which led to the 911 call. It’s unclear what the condition of the woman is.

“The female complaint was reportedly being beaten by the male and from witness reports her face was all swollen and bruised when officers arrived,” he said.

McManus said the female officer that fired their weapon has been on patrol for less than a year and will now be placed on administrative duty, for the duration of the investigation.

“She’ll be placed on administrative leave as is routine for an officer involved shootings until further notice,” he stated.

Neither the man shot nor the officer, have been identified.

The San Antonio Police Department and EMS both responded to the call.
