SAN ANTONIO (April 1, 2022) – The San Antonio Police Department today released footage from an officer-involved shooting that occurred on March 14, 2022, in an embankment in the area of Culebra and I-10.
On March 14, at approximately 3:45 p.m., three officers assigned to the SAPD Street Crimes Unit attempted to contact a wanted suspect in the 200 block of Carter St. The officers were aware that the suspect, identified as Kevin Johnson, was wanted on multiple warrants.
Johnson initially fled on his bicycle when officers first attempted to contact him. He then got off his bicycle and fled on foot as officers chased him. While running, Johnson pulled out a gun before pointing it at the pursuing officers. The three officers fired multiple rounds at the suspect striking him. The suspect died on the scene.
As with all officer-involved shootings, the District Attorney’s Office is investigating the incident.
Background information on the Department’s updated Body-Worn Camera Procedure: The San Antonio Police Department updated its Body-Worn Camera Department Procedure in December 2020 to release portions of videos and 911 calls related to critical incidents involving officer-involved shootings or use of force resulting in the death of an individual.
