Former CCPD Officer Charged in Police Shooting

SELMA, TX - A former Corpus Christi police officer is facing charges for shooting two police officers outside San Antonio.

Authorities confirmed Jesse Hernandez Jr. used to work for CCPD. He was terminated about five years ago for misconduct.

Late Thursday night, police in Selma say he opened fire on two of their officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance call at a home where Hernandez was staying with his wife and kids. One of the officers fired back, hitting Hernandez twice. He was taken to the hospital and is now in Bexar county jail facing charges for aggravated assault on a public servant.

Both officers are expected to be okay.

In 2007, Hernandez was placed on administrative leave after shooting two suspects who rammed his patrol car.
