SAN ANTONIO - A 13-year-old boy was shot and killed by San Antonio Police after crashing into a patrol car with a stolen vehicle while trying to flee on the Southwest Side.

The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. Friday off War Cloud Street near Old Pearsall Road.

Police said they responded to several calls for shots fired in the area. When they got to the scene, they tried to pull over the suspect's vehicle, which had been reported stolen. Police said the suspect then accelerated and crashed into the patrol car.

A second officer then shot the suspect because he was "fearing the other officer would be stuck by the suspect vehicle," according to the police report.

The 13-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital, but he later died from his injuries.

Two other juvenile suspects were not injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
