SAN ANTONIO — Three days after San Antonio Police Officer Robert Deckard was shot in the head during a pursuit, new details have emerged about an alleged robbery spree that preceded the incident.
Deckard, who remains hospitalized with a bullet lodged in his brain, was chasing Shawn Ruiz Puente and Jenevieve Ramos through Atascosa County early Sunday when the pair fired at his moving patrol vehicle, striking him in the forehead, according to police.
At a news conference hours after the shooting, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the couple had been suspects in a rash of about 15 robberies, six of which occurred the weekend Deckard was shot. McManus said Deckard was right to engage the pair in a high-speed pursuit because of the alleged violent felonies.
Puente, 32, and Ramos, 28, were caught in Wilson County on Sunday and immediately charged with aggravated assault of a public servant. Ramos remains in Wilson County Jail on the single charge, according to jail officials. Her bail has been set at $250,000.
