A man accused of pointing a gun at police during a standoff at a South Side apartment where a woman was found dead has been identified.

Angel A. Sanchez, 28, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer, police said. Additional charges are anticipated, officials said.

Sanchez was wounded during the standoff. He is being treated at San Antonio Military Medical Center and was booked into the Bexar County Jail by proxy, police said.

At about 9 p.m. Monday, police were alerted that a man had a shotgun and was threatening to kill the mother of his child and himself at an apartment in the 3100 block of Roosevelt Avenue.

When police arrived, Sanchez barricaded himself in the apartment with the woman, identified as Neida Tijerina. Three children were also in the apartment, including a 3-month-old and a 15-year-old, Chief William McManus said.

Officers could see Sanchez through the windows holding a rifle, the chief said.

At one point, Sanchez exited the apartment holding the baby in front of him before going back inside. Shortly after, he returned outside holding a gun, McManus said.

He allegedly turned the gun toward three officers, who were standing about 50 yards away near a freestanding garage. The officers fired, striking Sanchez, the chief said.

Police did not say how many times Sanchez was struck.

When officers entered the apartment, they found Tijerina dead. She was identified Tuesday by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office. The three children inside were unharmed, police said.

It was unclear how Tijerina died, and police have not said what transpired inside the apartment before her death.

The medical examiner’s office declined to say how Tijerina died Tuesday, saying police investigators had placed a hold on releasing information in her case.
