Domestic Dispute Standoff Ends in Police Shooting on Southwest Side in San Antonio

In a recent incident on the southwest side, a domestic dispute turned into a standoff resulting in the shooting of a man by five police officers, as confirmed by Police Chief William McManus.

The incident unfolded around 10:30 pm in the 100 block of Carranza Street near Frio City Road, following a distress call reporting a family disturbance involving a gun.

According to McManus, an altercation occurred inside a residence involving a man, his partner, and her teenage son. The conflict escalated when the man retrieved a weapon, prompting the woman and her 18-year-old son to flee the home. Three other children remained inside with the man.

Upon police arrival, attempts were made to negotiate with the armed man and persuade him to drop the weapon. McManus stated that during the negotiations, the suspect raised the gun and fired a round. In response, officers opened fire to protect themselves.

McManus emphasized that the information is preliminary and subject to change, but at present, it is known that three officers have been on the force for two years, one for five years, and another for 13 years.

The armed man was struck during the exchange of gunfire and subsequently taken to the hospital in stable condition.
