Update:

The Texas Department of Public Safety released information regarding the July 15 officer-involved shooting at a 7-Eleven in San Marcos.
In a press release, DPS says one of its troopers was assisting the U.S. Marshals Service with locating and arresting Jeffery Alan Scott, 35, who was wanted for murder and considered armed and dangerous.
The release says at approximately 8 p.m., the trooper approached the male suspect at the 7-Eleven on IH-35 and Wonder World Drive. It says the suspect, with a handgun, fired at the trooper, and the trooper fired back. The suspect was injured in the exchange and transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries. The trooper did not suffer from any injuries.
DPS says the suspect was then released to the custody of the Hays County Sheriff’s Office to be held for the outstanding Murder and Parole Violation warrants.
