Chaos continues to ensue out of Texas this week as a San Antonio officer was forced to open fire on a man who stabbed a woman with a pencil.
The attack took place at the Baptist Medical Hospital’s ambulance bay Wednesday night, when a 25-year-old man began stabbing a woman in the upper torso with a graphite-type writing implement.
“Officers tried to intervene, the suspect came after the officers,” SAPD William McManus said.
In a split-second response, a 9-year veteran of the SAPD opened fire, hitting the man in the torso.
The suspect was taken to the Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment, with police blocking off streets around the hospital, which was put on lockdown.
According to My San Antonio, the woman had minor injuries and reportedly said “You saved my life,” to the officers.
