SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio police have identified a suspect who investigators say was fatally shot by an officer responding to a domestic violence call.
Police on Tuesday identified the man as 37-year-old Jose Casares.
A police statement says the officer who shot Casares, while responding Monday to a call about a man with a gun threatening to shoot someone at a house, has been put on administrative duty. The officer's name wasn't released.
Investigators have said Casares was shot when he refused police orders to drop his weapon and then raised the gun in the direction of officers.
Police say a woman and three children in the home were not hurt. Police didn't immediately say whether Casares had a relationship with anyone in the house.
