SAN ANTONIO -- A man was shot and killed by a police officer Friday morning after investigators say the man shot his ex-girlfriend.
The man has been identified as 35-year-old Alfredo Aragon, and the ex-girlfriend has been identified as 27-year-old Abigail Jean Hernandez.
According to investigators San Antonio Police Department officer Michael Garza said he received a call from Hernandez saying she feared Aragon was going to hurt her and asked the officer Garza to come get her. San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus said the officer picked up Hernandez and drove her to her apartment on Micron Drive.
When the two arrived at the apartment complex, Hernandez spotted her ex-boyfriend's car. The officer and the woman decided to leave the gated community. But while they were waiting for the gate to open, Aragon reportedly walked up and opened fire on them. The officer said Aragon then got back into his vehicle and began chasing them and firing his gun at them. At some point, Hernandez was shot twice, once in the arm and once in the torso.
Investigators say the officer called in, said he was being shot at, and asked for assistance. He then followed the ex-boyfriend to his home on Field Wood, where the officer ended up shooting the ex-boyfriend at least once, killing him.
"He was so great to me and my sisters, I'm so thankful for the 16 years I had with him, " said daughter Sarina Aragon. The 16-year old said she was home at the time when her father was shot and killed along with her younger siblings.
"His life was dedicated to his children, it was just a bad situation that he got caught up in, and I'm just so devastated that it had to end this way, " said Aragon's ex-wife Cherlyn McDougal.
Aragon leaves behind three daughters and a son. He also owned Alamo Computer Solutions.
Abigail Hernandez was taken University Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
