    SAPD LEOs 1, BG 0 - Armed Robbery Suspect shot dead

    Here is a link to the story I heard this morning on the way in to work:

    Officer kills suspected robber

    Apparently, this SAPD officer has spent some time at the range, unlike the last one I posted. This BG dies at the scene after being hit several times.....

    Officer kills suspected robber

    Eva Ruth Moravec - Express-News

    A 15-year-old boy suspected of robbing a West Side gas station was shot and killed late Sunday by police when they confronted him in the parking lot and he refused to drop his weapon.

    The shooting occurred around 10:45 p.m. at a Valero gas station in the 1400 block of Culebra Road, near NW 18th Street. Authorities have not yet released the teen's name.

    San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said two officers with the Tactical Response Unit were patrolling the area when they spotted someone wearing a ski mask running into the convenience store.

    Suspecting a robbery, the officers pulled into the parking lot and notified dispatchers.

    The teen came running out armed with a handgun. When the officers ordered him to stop and drop his weapon, he instead turned and pointed the gun toward the officers, McManus said.

    Officer Paul Armendariz, a seven-year veteran of the force, shot multiple rounds, hitting the boy, who died at the scene.

    Next to the suspected robber's body was a handgun, the mask and some bloodied cash.

    Armendariz has been placed on administrative duty while the shooting team investigates the incident, which is standard in officer-involved shootings.

    McManus said there were two clerks inside the store who were not injured. There were no customers present at the time of the robbery.

    It was the 15th officer-involved shooting in San Antonio so far this year.

    The Tactical Response Unit has increased patrols in the area following last week's court injunction against two West Side gangs. The court order was designed to limit the gangs' ability to gather publicly and, police say, engage in dealing drugs.
    Good for the officer!

    Prayers to the officer and his family as he'll be dealing emotionally with A) The taking of human life and B) Having killed someone child.

    His actions may have been righteous but that does not reduce the emotional toll and burden.
    If only that child had made the choice to 'Freeze!' and drop his weapon.

    I am sorry if I offend, but if you have a gun and commit a crime, you are no longer a boy (according to the news paper) or a child. Actions HAVE consequences.

    a 15 yo committing armed robbery is not a child IMO. No disrespect intended. I for one am glad to see the LEO's serving and protecting the law abiding citizens of Texas.

    How many perps are in the system or on death row because they bumped off a convenience store and ended up shooting and killing the workers or customers?

    Agreed, and that's how it was real world as I was raised and coming up as a 'shorty'.

    But...Still being the man on the other end of a gun it'll no doubt bother him that the boy was just a 8th grader at best and with proper direction may have had an entire life left to live.

    This news account is a literal real world account of the hip hop classic 'Children's Story' as performed by Slick Rick.

    A sad and unfortunate turn of events and result for everyone involved including the victim, the intercepting police officers plural, and the child BG too.

    I'm of course glad that the BG was stopped, but I can't be anything but sad about the killing of a child.
