Man fatally shot on I-35 in San Marcos during police incident

SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — An incident on I-35 in San Marcos early Saturday morning resulted in a man’s shooting death during an incident involving San Marcos police.

Around 12:19 a.m. on Saturday morning, San Marcos Police Department officers responded to I-35 near the southbound mile marker 204 for Seguin, where a man was reported to be walking through traffic. Police say they also witnessed this.

SMPD reports that when they tried to detain him, officers realized he was holding a knife or a similar object. Officers say he moved aggressively toward them bearing the weapon.

Officers attempted to de-escalate the situation, SMPD says, however the man turned and ran into the road once more — resulting a near-collision with an 18-wheeler.

The man reportedly charged at the officers again, with the weapon high over his head, at which time he was shot and officers began life-saving efforts.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. SMPD says he had no identification on him, so ID is pending.

The investigation is ongoing.
