AUSTIN (KXAN) - More than three months since an Austin Police officer shot and killed a man on E. 8th Street, the Austin Police Department is still seeking more information on the case.
Detectives would like to speak to anyone who witnessed or has information related to the officer-involved shooting on May 30.
The incident that led to the shooting began at 10:48 p.m. when two bicycle officers with the car burglary team were patrolling near Eighth Street, just east of Interstate 35.
Officer Jeffrey Rodriguez and Officer Nathan Wagner said they saw two men casing cars, but ended up losing sight of them.
The officers got off their bikes to walk around and look for the possible suspects; at that point, police said they spotted two men sitting in a parked car.
Police said the driver, a 16-year-old male, rammed his car into a parked Jeep, causing it to lunge forward and hit Rodriguez. Because Wagner couldn't see his partner and thought he was stuck beneath the car, Wagner fired shots at the moving vehicle.
"Fearing that his partner was underneath that vehicle meant potentially being dragged," said Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo.
The vehicle was found 20 minutes later near the corner of 11th and Branch streets. The driver wasn't in the car, but the passenger, Byron Carter, 20 , was dead.
The juvenile driver was apprehended a short time later and charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and evading arrest.
Rodriguez was treated for a leg injury and Wagner has been on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
Wagner is a three-year veteran with the department. Austin Police Department said they are still working on the case and none of the officers involved have been indicted.
