Texas Officer Shot In Head, SWAT Surrounds Barricaded Suspect

September 09, 2013  | 

SWAT officers surrounded the motel where a San Antonio Police officer was shot in the head after responding to a domestic dispute on Monday.

The officer, Aaron Terrazas, was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center. He is expected to survive his wounds, reports the San Antonio Express-News.

The suspect barricaded himself in a first-floor room of the Super 8 Motel and SWAT officers began trying to communicate with him.

Terrazas was shot after responding to the motel at 7:53 a.m. The suspect reportedly shot him through the door. A nearby off-duty officer was alerted to the shooting on his police radio and went to the hotel to transport Terrazas to the hospital.

I LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT ONE OFFICER COMING TO THE AID OF ANOTHER. THAT IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO GIVE PROFESSIONAL COURTESY, WHEN IT IS DESERVED, TO OFF DUTY AND RETIRED OFFICERS. THIS GOES OUT ESPECIALLY TO STATE TROOPERS WHO IT APPEARS ARE TRAINED NOT TO GIVE BREAKS TO ANYONE INCLUDING POLICE. WE ARE A FAMILY IREGARDLESS OF WHAT OUR BADGES SAY.

Richard Isaacs,
I don't understand why you think your comment has anything to do with this story. Professional courtesy should not have any bearing on helping a brother when they are in need.
