(Story revised) A suspect was flown by AirLife to a San Antonio medical facility following a shootout with Wilson County Sheriff's Office deputies this morning south of San Antonio on U.S. 181 near Loop 1604.

According to Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., the man stole a pickup truck from property on C.R. 150 around 9 a.m. Saturday. The truck's owner said the man drove away, but returned and fired a gun when he tried to approach him. The owner also said the suspect fired at the ground from the truck when approached by a neighbor.

The shooter left, and was pursued by deputies. The chase ended south of Loop 1604, after the suspect stopped, exited his vehicle, and began shooting at Wilson County Sheriff's Office deputies, who returned fire.

Traffic in the vicinity was diverted from U.S. 181 to C.R. 350 and then to Loop 1604, while the investigation continued.

Unless you have walked a mile in the officers shoes and been in a gun fight you have no room to criticize. The suspect died from the GSW's.

Deputies returned fire but did not kill him? Time for some firing range time maybe?

The population growth of Wilson County has brought the unintended consequences of large urban - San Antonio - problems into our community.
