A gunman who fired several shots at the headquarters of the San Antonio Police Department remains at large. Although the gunman specifically targeted the police headquarters, no one was injured. Police found multiple shell casings and a Hispanic male was seen running from the scene.
A police spokesman said that they had received numerous posts on social media that contain vague threats but nothing specific about the police headquarters. A man was detained briefly, then released since he was ruled out as a suspect. An abandoned vehicle was found near the police station and will be impounded after the bomb squad gives it the all clear. Police across the country are on high alert after the shooting of 12 officers in Dallas. San Antonio police are still investigating the incident.
Young Conservatives reports:
A gunman opened fire outside the headquarters of the San Antonio Police Department in Texas, striking the building but causing no injuries, officials say. The suspect, who is believed to have “specifically targeted” police, remains at large.
The incident happened at about 9:50 p.m. CT on Saturday when multiple gunshots were fired outside the headquarters of the San Antonio Police Department, which is located at 315 South Santa Rosa Avenue off Interstate 35.
“SAPD officers located multiple shell casings at Grahm Alley and S Santa Rosa. A Hispanic male wearing an orange shirt and navy blue pants was seen running from the scene,” police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Salame said. “Bullet impact marks were discovered on the east side of headquarters.”
“We believe that headquarters was specifically targeted,” Sgt. Salame said, adding that the exact motive is still under investigation. “We have received numerous posts on social media conveying vague threats to officers but have no specific threats or information to pass along at this time.”
