VIDEO: San Antonio Officer Shot in Head, Critical

San Antonio police officer Robert Deckard, who was shot in the head Sunday during a high-speed car chase, was still in critical condition Monday morning at San Antonio Military Medical Center, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Deckard, 31, remains in the intensive care unit at the hospital. He is a seven-year veteran of the San Antonio Police Department.

Officials say Deckard was shot through the forehead from a moving car containing Shawn Ruiz Puente, 32 and Jeneieve Ramos, 28, who are suspected of committing a recent string of 15 armed robberies. Deckard was filling in for another officer when he spotted the suspects' car and began chasing it Sunday at about 2 a.m., officials said. The pair led Deckard on a high-speed chase into Atascosa County, where the shots were fired, officials said.

Police said Puente and Ramos will be charged Monday with attempted capital murder and aggravated robbery. If Deckard dies, they will be charged with capital murder.
