Texas Self Defense: Carjacking suspect shot during robbery at North Side gas station :: 04/26/2022
A man suspected of carjacking was shot by the vehicle’s owner at a gas station on the North Side, San Antonio police said.
The man was shot multiple times after trying to steal a blue Honda Accord at the QuikTrip at 9907 San Pedro Ave., police said.
At about 10 a.m., the Honda owner was pumping gas at the QuikTrip when the suspect reportedly drove up to the pumps in a silver pickup truck. As the owner was occupied filling his car’s tank, the suspect jumped into the Honda’s driver’s seat, said Nick Soliz, a spokesman for the San Antonio Police Department.
The car owner saw the suspect trying to take his vehicle and jumped in it, Soliz said. A fight between the two ensued, and in the struggle, the Honda was put in reverse. The car moved backwards and crashed in a rocky median next to the street.
As the fight continued, the Honda owner pulled out a firearm and shot the other man multiple times, Soliz said.
The suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The car owner was taken to police headquarters for questioning.
Soliz did not have identifications for either man, he told reporters. And it is unclear what charges, if any, either man will face.
Soliz said there was no one else in the pickup truck that the suspect was driving and that detectives are still sorting out what happened.
