Female San Antonio PD Officer Stops Shooter at Hospital

November 12, 2013  | 

A man shot by police Sunday at a North Side emergency center after officials said he attacked two officers — knocking one unconscious — has been charged with attempted capital murder of a police officer, reports the San Antonio Express-News.

Darryn Burgess, 40, was also charged Monday with taking a weapon from a police officer and assault on a public servant. His bail was set at a combined $100,000, according to arrest records.

Officer Yvette Meade, an eight-year veteran and the officer who shot Burgess, was struck in the face during the fight and was knocked out, police said in a news release. She was treated and released.

Her partner, Officer Roberto Aguilar, a five-year veteran, was in stable condition at University Hospital. Aguilar was shot in the leg during a struggle with Burgess when he tried to take the officer's weapon, police said.

Good job officers. But could we please just all be officers instead of "female" officers? For Pete's sake, you never see male officers singled out in headlines as being male.

Liz, good point. Blues, Stay Safe.

Well done, Officer Meade.

Once again "Police" leaves me wondering. If Officer Meade was knocked out, then how did she shoot the suspect? Did she regain consciousness then get back into the fight? or shoot him before being struck in the face and losing consciousness? Either way: good job.
