Elmendorf Police Chief Michael Pimentel is dead, after being shot in the line of duty today. Officials with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office continue their investigation.

During a 3:40 p.m. telephone interview, Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau confirmed the identity of the officer as Police Chief Michael Pimentel. She also said that the suspect, 24-year-old Joshua Manuel Lopez of Elmendorf has been apprehended and is waiting to appear before a magistrate judge in the Bexar County Jail. He will be charged with capital murder of a police officer.

Pamerleau said deputies were called to the scene at approximately 11:34 a.m. after Pimentel had been shot while conducting a traffic stop at the intersection of South First Avenue and East Ninth Street. Lopez was the subject of an active arrest warrant stemming from graffiti charges.

Pimentel was flown from the scene via AirLife helicopter, and was pronounced dead at University Hospital in San Antonio.

“We extend our condolences and sadness to the family of Michael Pimentel and to the entire community of Elmendorf,” Pamerleau said. “Even in a quiet, peaceful community in the middle of the day, things can turn deadly in an instant.”
