    50 Rounds Exchanged During Police Shootout

    50 Rounds Exchanged During Police Shootout
    Schertz Police Officer Escapes Injury; Suspect Wounded

    SAN ANTONIO -- A Schertz police officer escaped serious injury late Thursday despite a hail of gunfire from two weapons allegedly fired by a 48-year-old Comal County man he had stopped for speeding.

    Schertz Police Chief Stephen Starr said Officer Richard Kunz pulled over Michael Kennedy for speeding on north Interstate 35 near FM 1103 at 11:30 p.m. when the officer noticed Kennedy was carrying a handgun.

    Seconds later, Kennedy then allegedly took out an assault-style rifle out of his Toyota Corolla and emptied 30 rounds from an AK-47 and then from a .9mm handgun, Starr said.

    Kunz, hidden behind his cruiser, managed to fire off 16 shots, three of them hit Kennedy in the back and neck. Kennedy was listed Friday in serious condition at Brooke Army Medical Center.

    Kunz was not hurt but his patrol car was riddled with 30 bullets.

    "Our officer was extremely lucky," Starr said. "We do a lot of firearms training here, and he reverted to the training that we initiated here at the department and everything fell into place. And that's what we look for."

    Starr said three weapons and several magazines of ammunition, including a sidearm in a holster, were recovered from Kennedy's car.

    Kennedy faces attempted capital murder charges.

    The Texas Rangers are investigating.

    Kunz was placed on administrative leave with pay while the investigation is ongoing.

    Officer Kunz should come out of it with a medal I hope. Careless about the scumbag.
