Getaway car injures policeman robbery suspect shot
SAN ANTONIO (8/12/09)--A San Antonio police office was run over by a getaway car and a robbery suspect was shot Tuesday during a robbery at a branch of San Antonio FCU on Southwest Military Drive. The officer, an eight-year veteran who was not identified, suffered non-life-threatening injuries (Express-News and WOAI Aug. 11). He was dragged by the suspect's small sports utility vehicle after trying to take the keys away. The SUV ran over his chest and arm, and he was taken to a nearby medical center, Police Chief William McManus. An unidentified robbery suspect was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his arm (Dallas News and KENS5.com Aug. 11). The robbery occurred at 8:15 a.m. when a man driving a dark green Kia Sportage demanded cash from the drive-thru teller, telling her he had a grenade. He drove away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Officers spotted the Kia in a gas station parking lot and approached the car. The officer who was injured tried to grab the key out of the ignition, but the suspect hit the gas while the policeman was still halfway in the car. The officer fired two shots, one of which hit the suspect's arm. Police recovered some money but found no grenade or explosives in the car.
