SAPD officers shoot, kill aggravated robbery suspect on East Side, chief says

Officers were tracking man at a home on Ravina Street

SAN ANTONIO – Two San Antonio police officers tracking down a man wanted on two aggravated robbery warrants shot and killed the man on the East Side, according to Chief William McManus.

Police said the officers tracked the man, who was in his 30s, to a home in the 2800 block of Ravina Street on Monday night.

When the officers approached the man, he pulled a weapon from his waistband and pointed it toward the two officers, McManus said. That prompted the officers to fire at the man, striking him.

McManus said the man did not fire at the officers.

The man was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

McManus said one of the officers has been with the force for 13 years, and the other detective has been with SAPD for 16 years.
