SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Authorities say a San Antonio restaurant worker apparently upset when his girlfriend left him shot a random patron outside a theater before being wounded by an officer.
Bexar County sheriff’s Sgt. Raymond Pollard says the suspect will face charges of attempted capital murder of an officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Pollard says the man worked at a Chinese restaurant but was off Sunday night. Pollard says the suspect, following the breakup, sent the woman a message saying he was going to the restaurant. The suspect arrived and chased a co-worker toward the nearby theater, shooting out the window of an arriving police car.
An off-duty officer followed the suspect into the theater and shot him. He’s hospitalized in stable condition.
The patron was treated and released.
