On Tuesday, February 8, 2022, an officer effected a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling along the area of Gollihar Rd. and Randall Dr.   

Upon attempting to make contact with the driver, the male evaded in the vehicle at which point the officer ceased the traffic stop and did not pursue.  Shortly after, officers were alerted to a crash on the 4200 block of Kostoryz Rd.  

Upon arriving at the accident, officers recognized the suspect vehicle and attempted to make contact with the suspect who was still inside the vehicle. The male broke out the passenger window and exited the vehicle, he then proceeded to evade on foot. Officers were canvassing the area searching for the suspect, when an officer observed the male in an alleyway, along the 4100 block of Kostoryz Rd. Upon seeing the officer, the suspect produced a weapon, which forced a second officer to discharge his service weapon striking the suspect. 

The suspect was provided immediate medical attention and was transported to a local hospital.  The suspect was later pronounced deceased.  

We can confirm that a weapon produced by the suspect was located on scene. 

In reference to the crash, the suspect collided with two separate vehicles, causing minor injuries to three adults and one minor child. Two adults and the minor child were all transported to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.

The Corpus Christi Police Officers will be placed on paid administrative leave, in accordance with current department practice and policy.
