The news is out: [A city commissioner in Southern Texas was killed amid an exchange of bullets after he opened fire on police officers at his home on Thursday, cops said.
Gabriel Salinas, a Sullivan City Commissioner, died after cops and a sheriff’s deputy responded to a domestic disturbance at his home in the city of Mission, according to authorities.
“As far as I know right now, it was not a self-inflicted gunshot wound. I think that he died as a result of being hit in the transfer of fire,” said Mission Police Chief Robert Dominguez, according to The Associated Press.
Dominguez said Salinas’ 39-year-old girlfriend was sent to intensive care at a hospital with “knife slashes,” The Monitor newspaper reported. She was expected to recover.
Her 4-year-old son also was treated for minor injuries to the head and knee, according to The Monitor.]
That’s what they do.
