SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A deputy is hospitalized after he was shot twice as he and four other deputies tried to serve felony warrants at a house just outside northwestern San Antonio.

Bexar (BAYR) County sheriff’s Deputy Jose Esquivel was shot about 6 p.m. Tuesday. Sheriff Susan Pamerleau says he and the other deputies were trying to serve seven felony arrest warrants on 38-year-old Juan Daniel Gonzales Jr. The warrants accused him of felony theft, retaliation and failing to register as a sex offender.

Pamerleau says as deputies searched the house, Gonzales surprised a deputy in the laundry room and shots were fired.

No condition was available on the deputy, but Pamerleau says the 28-year veteran of the sheriff’s office was alert as he was taken to a nearby hospital.

Gonzales is in custody.
