HAYS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A high-speed chase in Hays County on Monday ended with the suspect being shot by deputies, according to the Hays County Sheriff’s Office.
HCSO says around 5:15 p.m. on Monday, a deputy saw a vehicle traveling at high speed going north on I-35, “weaving recklessly in and out of traffic.”
Deputies attempted to pull the driver over but, HCSO says, the driver fled and a pursuit began. HCSO deputies and Buda Police Department officers were finally able to disable the vehicle on South Loop 4 near Interstate Drive, just south of Buda city limits.
When the vehicle stopped, the driver reportedly showed a gun and officers fired, hitting the man. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and is in stable condition.
No officers were injured and the investigation is ongoing.
