FoxSanAntonio reports Westall was carrying a small automatic machine gun shortly after 5 p.m. when she visited at least one business in the shopping area at Huebner and Vance Jackson.
After leaving Domino’s following a short conversation with the manager, she was confronted by a sergeant from the San Antonio Police Department. He shot her when she pointed a weapon at him.
“If she really had an Uzi, who knows what could have happened. He could have saved a lot of lives,” said Louie Salinas, who works at the nearby UPS store. “That cop was brave.”
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with possible information on the fatal case should contact police at 911.
