SAN ANTONIO (Feb. 12, 2019) — Mayor Ron Nirenberg issued the following statement in response to today’s early morning shooting of a San Antonio Police officer:


“This morning’s shooting demonstrated once again the courage of San Antonio Police Officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect our City.


Officer Drew Matthewson showed the kind of bravery that we can never take for granted. I am grateful that he was released from the hospital this morning. Our prayers are with him as he recovers at home.


We owe a debt of gratitude to Officer Matthewson and his fellow officers for their courage and dedication as they keep our City safe.”
