Officer Involved Shooting

On December 21, 2015 at approximately 10:19 pm, officers were dispatched to the area of 14600 Red River Drive in reference to a report of shots being fired.

Offices arrived and were informed by a citizen that there was a male inside the house and he had fired a round. As officers were responding to the residence, the female victim came out and advised the officers that there was a man inside the house with a gun. She also stated there were two children under the age of ten inside the house with the suspect.

As officers were securing the scene, the 21 year old male came out of the home with a gun in his hand. Officers began communicating with the suspect and gave orders to drop the gun. The suspect refused and pointed the gun at the officers. The officers fearing for their life fired their weapons striking the suspect. The suspect was transported to Spohn Memorial with non life threatening injuries.

One officer from the Corpus Christi Police Department and one officer from Nueces County Sheriffs Department were placed on administrative leave during the investigation. CCPD will be conducting the investigation working closely with NCSO.

At this time the suspect faces charges of aggravated assault family violence and attempted capital murder.
