Off-Duty Officer Kills Motorist in San Antonio 9/1/13
September 1, 2013
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Bexar County authorities say an off-duty officer has shot and killed an unarmed motorist in San Antonio after the two had an altercation.
Sheriff's office spokesman Paul Berry says the incident occurred early Sunday after the off-duty officer left his job as a security guard. The San Antonio Express-News reports the deputy and another man apparently had a minor car crash.
Berry says the two pulled over and started arguing. He says the officer "fired multiple shots, hitting the other driver."
Berry says the driver was unarmed, but it remains unclear whether he attacked the officer. The two have not yet been identified.
An investigation is ongoing. Until it is completed, the officer retains his badge and weapon.
