This morning at 8:40 AM the Corpus Christi Police SWAT team was preparing to make entry into a home at 3001 Churchill Street to execute a narcotics arrest and search warrant,
As officers were making entry a suspect inside the home opened fire on the SWAT team members. Three officers were injured by the gunfire.
Sr. Police Officer Steven Ruebelmann (6-year veteran) received two gunshot wounds. One to his wrist and one to his hand.
Officer Andrew Jordan (4-year veteran) received a gunshot wound to his upper leg and one to his forearm.
Officer Steven Brown (2-year officer) received a superficial wound to his right calf and forearm.
All officers were taken to Christus Spohn MMC for treatment. Officers Jordan and Ruebelmann are still there being treated. Officer Jordan did undergo surgery earlier and is stable at this time. Officer Ruebelmann is in a private room recovering.

Three suspects were originally detained by officers inside the home. Ray Rosas (06/03/1968) has been arrested for three counts of attempted capital murder.
