A man is facing attempted capital murder charges after allegedly shooting a police officer during a traffic stop, then leading authorities on a high-speed, multi-county chase.
A news release from San Antonio police says Fredericksburg police officer Bradley Durst stopped a car around 1:40 a.m. Saturday. As the officer approached the vehicle, police say Robert Rendon, a 31-year-old from San Angelo, fired multiple shots, hitting Durst twice.
Police say the suspect then fled and around 4 a.m. lost control of his car and crashed.
Rendon faces three counts of attempted capital murder. His bond was set at a combined $750,000.
A man who answered a phone listed to a relative of Rendon's said Sunday the family declined to comment.
Durst had surgery and was listed in stable condition.
