December 29, 2013
SAN ANTONIO - A San Antonio high school has served as a tribute site
for a police officer who died last week of wounds suffered earlier in the month
while he was chasing suspects in a robbery.
More than 50 friends, relatives and former classmates gathered at San
Antonio Highlands High School Friday night to remember Robert Deckard. He
graduated from the school in 2000.
Deckard was shot December 8th during a car chase that extended from San
Antonio into neighboring Atascosa County. He died December 20th.
Classmate Chris DeLeon told the San Antonio Express-News Deckard was a class
clown and always wore a smile. Adriana Balderrama says she knew him from middle
school and that he always wanted to be a police officer.
