VIDEO: Man Drives Truck Into Sheriff's Office, Fires Shots

A man drove his pickup truck into the San Patricio County Sheriff’s Office Wayne Hitt Law Enforcement Center in Sinton, Texas, reports the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

The suspect, 45-year-old Benito Gonzales, drove a blue Dodge pickup into the sheriff’s office building about 7:40 a.m., Sheriff Leroy Moody said. The man used a .45 caliber pistol to fire at least four shots at the building, located in the 300 block of North Rachal Street, Moody added.

A deputy fired three shots at the man and struck him twice, he said. No county employees were injured, but the man was taken to a Corpus Christi hospital, where he underwent surgery and later died.

“Those of us in the building thought there had been an explosion from the noise,” Moody said.

Gonzales, a Sinton resident who was from Orange Grove, has no apparent connection to the San Patricio County Sheriff’s Office, Moody said.

Benito has had one to many peyote buttons. His Aluminum Foil Cap received the wrong radio waves. Lucky he survived 2 wounds. Time to return him to his much needed RUBBER ROOM sponsored by Obama & With-Holder...!!!

Sadly, Mr. Gonzales was seeking death by cop. He recently had been diagnosed with colon cancer and was deeply depressed over his illness.
