Officer involved shooting

Local News

A police chase ends with a suspect swimming into Mexico near La Joya. The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case.  A sergeant with HCSO says La Joya PD was called out to the parking lot of El Pato restaurant near Coyote Drive and Expressway 83 this morning.  They were investigating a suspicious car when the driver of that car allegedly rammed it into the officer’s unit. The police officer then fired his weapon.

HCSO says the driver began a small police chase that ended near South Leo Avenue and Military Road close to the river.  The water currents worked in the favor of the suspect as he swam into Mexico.
