A 23 year old woman is dead after she allegedly pointed an Uzi automatic weapon at a San Antonio Police Sergeant at a northwest side shopping mall, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Chief William McManus told News Radio 1200 WOAI on the scene other patrons had reported the woman with the gun at the Huebner Commons Mall at Vance Jackson and Huebner Rd.
"I was told she was acting distraught," he said. "Hands up, fists clenched."
McManus says a police sergeant, a 21 year veteran, who was in the area at the time, approached the woman and told her to put down the weapon.
"She very slowly turned around, pulled the gun, and pointed it at the sergeant."
He then fired four rounds, hitting the woman in the torso. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The sergeant wasn't hurt and McManus says the woman didn't fire any shots.
No word on why she did it. So far, the woman has not been identified.
