3 Texas Officers Shot Serving Narcotics Warrant

February 19, 2015  | 

Three Corpus Christi Police Department SWAT officers were shot during a narcotics raid Thursday morning at around 9 a.m.

Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson held a press conference at around 10:30 a.m., where he reported that as officers made entry to the house, the three suspects opened fire. The three suspects were taken into custody by members of the SWAT Team. The area around the home was secured, and the house has been cleared.

Ray Rosas, 46, was arrested and charged with three counts of attempted capital murder. Another suspect has not been charged with shooting at the officers, but does still face charges from the original arrest warrant in relation to the narcotics raid.

The three officers who were shot are being treated at Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital. Officer Andrew Jordan, a four-year veteran of the CCPD, was shot in the upper leg and forearm; Senior Officer Steven Ruebelmann, a six-year veteran, was shot in the wrist and hand; and Officer Steven Brown, a two-year veteran, received a superficial wound to his right calf, 3News reports.
