A 48-year-old Bulverde man was charged with attempted capital murder Friday after he fired at a Schertz police officer, spraying his patrol car with more than 30 rounds, authorities said.
The man, identified as Michael Patrick Kennedy, used an AK-47 assault rifle and a handgun to open fire on Officer Richard Kunz during a traffic stop Thursday night, according to an arrest affidavit.
Kunz managed to take cover behind his patrol car and returned fire, striking Kennedy three times in the back and neck, officials said.
Kennedy was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition Friday. He was expected to survive.
Kunz, who was not injured, was on administrative leave Friday.
The Schertz officer stopped a driver for a speeding violation at 11:38 p.m. in the 23500 block of Interstate 35.
Kunz approached a black Toyota Corolla and identified himself as a police officer, according to the affidavit. Kunz then saw the driver raise a pistol and point it toward the officer's face, the affidavit states.
Officers recovered three firearms, including the assault rifle and a 9 mm pistol.
The Texas Rangers are assisting Schertz police in their investigation.
Thursday night's shooting was the first against a Schertz officer in more than 2= years, Public Information Officer Debbie K. Gildea said.
Kunz has been on the Schertz police force, which has 36 sworn officers, for two years, Gildea said.
