Man shot after reportedly pulling a gun on a San Antonio Police Officer
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A San Antonio Police Officer is on administrative leave after shooting a man who pulled on gun on her.
It all started just before midnight Tuesday at the Colonnade Apartments near IH-10.
Police were responding to a 9-1-1 call from the apartment complex by a woman who said she had been assaulted.
An officer saw a man jump out of a second story window and she approached the man, he pulled a gun and pointed it toward the officer.
But the officer fired her gun first, hitting the man in the leg.
He was brought to a local hospital and is expected to recover. There’s no word on the condition of the woman who made the 9-1-1 call.
No names have been released but Police Chief William McManus says the SAPD Officer has been on patrol for less than a year.
