    A Flour Bluff woman is under guard at Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital after she was shot by police. The 38-year-old has been charged with attempted capital murder, following a domestic disturbance last night with her husband on the 33-hundred block of Jamaica.
    Police said the woman fired a shot in the home, and was leaving the scene as officers arrived. A short pursuit followed through the neighborhood, the woman utlimately returning to the home on Jamaica.
    It was then she reportedly pointed the gun at officers who then opened fired.
    "A typical family disturbance that officers are disptached to everyday throughout the city that escalated to point of violence and obviously became a very dangerous situation for both the individuals involved and the officers," said Capt. Todd Green of the Corpus Christi Police Department.
    Senior Officer Jerry Schiebrel, a 26-year veteran, and Officer Joshua Swain, who's been on the force for 3 and half years will be placed on adminstrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting

    from reading some of the comments on the website it seems several people are thinking the officers did something wrong since they were placed on administrative leave, and do not understand that most departments require this in officer involved shootings. I don't think people understand the stress this has to put on these officers, not just the aftermath but the entire event

    PAL is always given. CCPD also will require each officer visit a shrink at least once.

    It would be nice, and responsible, for the media to complete the story in that regard. Some folks want to think LEO's are out looking for people to kill, file a report them go to lunch or go out for a beer with the boys. They don't want to accept that it's not something one wants to do, and when/if they ever have to, it's a bad deal.

    That would not fit the agenda of most media outlets.

    Most also require at least one fallow-up visit in like 6 months as well the initial pyic evaluation. I could be wrong tho.
    I know in the private sector there is one pyiceval and legal proceedings as well as two weeks off.
