Off-duty deputy working security shoots teen www.privateofficer.com
SAN ANTONIO TX Dec 31 2010 — An off-duty Bexar County Sheriff’s deputy shot and wounded a 16-year-old boy in a stolen car early Thursday morning.
The wounded teen, a passenger, and the driver, were speeding from the parking lot at the Cypress Cove apartments at 601 Northwest Loop 410, where several cars had been burglarized, sheriff’s officials said.
The deputy, identified as C. Longoria, who lives in the complex and works as a security guard there, fired several shots as the compact car sped toward him, sheriff’s officials said.
“He used his flashlight and identified himself. The car hesitated … then sped up … the officer jumped out of the way and discharged his weapon,” said Sgt. Aaron Vonmuldau of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
Several hours after the 4 a.m. incident, the wounded teenager showed up at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm. The teen admitted he had been involved in the burglaries. The teen was treated for his injuries and then was charged with burglary and assault.
Investigators said the teen is refusing to identity the driver.
The car was later found abandoned at 6112 Zangs Dr., a little over half a mile from the shooting scene. The car had been reported stolen on Oct. 26, sheriff’s officials said.
