SAN ANTONIO, Texas An officer-involved shooting that took place in a Walmart parking lot is currently being investigated by federal, state, and local officials.

Reports from WOAI say the incident took place last night at the Walmart located in the 7000 block of Ray Ellison.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said a team of his deputies and the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force had followed a sexual assault suspect into a Walmart parking lot as he pulled up to the Walmart’s gas station.

According to San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus, it is unclear whether the suspect knew he was being followed or if he just needed gas.

“We approached the vehicle and an SAPD officer wound up firing a shot, striking the suspect in the vehicle,” Chief McManus said.

Chief McManus also said the officer had a long rifle with a drum magazine attached, but he was unsure what sort of weapon the officer had.

Chief McManus believes the suspect was taken to the hospital alive after the officer fired a single shot.

WOAI reports the suspect later succumbed to his injuries and died in the hospital.

Neither law enforcement agency has identified the suspect.

Sheriff Salazar only said the suspect was an aggravated sexual assault suspect from an incident which occurred a few days ago and was in his mid-30s.
