Detective Mario Moreno was shot and killed while attempting to serve an arrest warrant on a suspect who had shot his girlfriend the previous day.

The detective, along with other officers assigned to the Repeat Offender Program, went to an apartment complex where the suspect was hiding. With the assistance of the shooting victim, the suspect was lured out into the parking lot. When the suspect spotted the officers, he fled on foot, with Detective Moreno in close pursuit. During the chase, the suspect drew a shotgun and opened fire, striking Detective Moreno in the face. Other officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

He was transported to University Hospital, but died from his wounds a short time later.

Detective Moreno had served with the San Antonio Police Department for 11 years. He is survived by his wife and two young children.
