The three Corpus Christi Police Officers involved in a shooting at a home located at 3818 Brookside Drive have been identified.
All three officers involved hold the rank of Senior Officer. Douglas May, a 25 year veteran; Adam Villarreal, a 24 year veteran; and Bob Dorsch, a 20 year veteran; are all currently on paid administrative leave.
The three officers involved in the shooting and a police supervisor all entered the home to talk with a 21 year old man who had locked himself in a back bedroom. The officers were originally sent to the home to assist the man’s mother serve a mental commitment warrant on her son.
Four officers entered the home, and two remained outside to cover the windows and back door. The officers inside the home spoke to the man through the bedroom door for nearly an hour, trying to get him to come out. When three of the officers were finally able to enter the bedroom they found that the man had retreated into the closet.
While officers continued to try and speak to the man, he pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officers. They commanded him to drop the weapon, but he refused. In fear for their lives, three of the four officers in the room fired at the victim striking him several times.
The man was taken by CCFD EMS to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit. He is currently under police guard and faces charges of attempted capital murder.
