The Brownsville man shot and wounded by a sheriff's deputy on Monday is now in a San Antonio hospital in critical condition.
He is identified as Moises Patlan, and officials say a deputy shot him after he threatened the deputy several times from behind the wheel. Deputies say Paltan even tried ramming the deputy's patrol car and that the deputy tried to speak to Paltan several times. He feared for his life after several attempts by Paltan to run him over and opened fire on Paltan.
