Officer: Suspect arrested in Texas base shooting
June 10, 2013 at 1:10 a.m.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - An instructor at an Army medical training school at a military base in Texas was wounded Monday when a fellow service member shot her outside her office, authorities said.
The suspect later surrendered to police, and authorities say no one else was ever in danger.
Col. Jim Chevallier, vice commander of 502 Air Base Wing, would not give the identity of the shooter or victim or discuss any possible relationship between the two. But San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told the San Antonio Express-News that the victim and shooter were involved in a relationship.
The incident took place at Fort Sam Houston's Army Medical Department Center and School at about 2:50 p.m. Authorities said the shooter was a soldier who came into the victim's office and began talking to her. The pair then continued a discussion on a veranda outside the building, where the shooter eventually fired multiple shots from a handgun, Chevallier said.
It was not clear how many shots were fired.
