|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Multiple|
A quick thinking, quick acting concealed carrier reacted when a man posing as a police officer tried to steal his truck.
According to KENS5,
According to the San Antonio Police Department, Joshua McCann was in town to pick up a motorcycle from a local shop and haul it back to Michigan for a customer. But, when he pulled into the shopping center, a man claiming to be a police officer stopped him and instructed him to get out of the truck.
After exiting, the driver asked to see a badge. The suspect allegedly told McCann that he was going to steal the truck and that’s when the 22-year-old sprang into action.
McCann drew his concealed firearm and fired at least three shots at the suspect. The suspect was hit by an unknown number of shots and collapsed.
Authorities transported the suspect to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Witness testimony matched up with McCann’s version of events and this seems to be a very clear case of self defense.
