San Antonio Officers Fatally Shoot Man Pointing Gun, Police Say

SAN ANTONIO (CBSDFW.COM) — A 45-year-old man was fatally shot by police after pointing a gun at officers at a home Saturday morning, San Antonio police said.

Just shy of 6:30 a.m. Feb. 29, officers responded to a disturbance call in the 300 block of Concio Street after a woman called saying a man in her mother's home was causing a disturbance with a gun.

When police arrived, they ushered three children outside of the house before going in. And while inside, the man — who has not been identified — pointed his gun at officers and was shortly shot by two officers multiple times.

Police Chief William McManus said the man was the on-again, off-again boyfriend of the mother of the woman who called police. The mother wasn't at home at the time of the shooting.

McManus said the officers involved in the shooting have been with the department for nine and 10 years.

This is an ongoing investigation.
