Texas Deputy Wounded in Gunfight with “Suicidal” Subject

June 24, 2016  | 

A Comal County, TX, deputy and a man described by law enforcement officials as "suicidal" were wounded in an exchange of gunfire Thursday night in Bulverde.

Comal County sheriff’s deputies and officers with the Bulverde Police Department arrived at a home and found a man standing in the street with a handgun, officials told KSAT TV.

Minutes later, the man fired several shots at the lawmen, wounding a deputy, sheriff's officials said. The shots led to a brief exchange of gunfire that left the man with several gunshot wounds, sheriff's officials said. The deputy was wearing his protective vest.

The deputy and the man were airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio. While the man's condition was unknown, the deputy was expected to make a full recovery, officials said.
