The incident began when the department's Covert Response Unit saw a wanted suspect exit a building and get into a car near West Commerce and 36th Street, according to an SAPD report. Additional units were called to assist in following the suspect's car.

When an officer turned on his emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle stopped on the side of the road near I-35 and Somerset Road. The suspect crawled out of a window with a gun and ran across the road toward a field, SAPD said.

Officers yelled at the suspect to drop his weapon, but then the suspect fired a gunshot at officers, striking an officer’s chest body armor, the report said.

Several officers returned fire as they ran after the suspect, striking him. He was transported to the hospital.

The suspect faces charges for Unlawful Carry of a Weapon/Felony Conviction, Possession of a CS 1–4 grams, Evading Arrest/Detention, and Aggravated Assault Against a Peace Officer.

Three other passengers were detained at the scene. No one else was injured.
