Suspect shot in Temple officer involved shooting identified

Posted:
TEMPLE -

The suspect who was shot in the chest during the officer involved shooting Tuesday night in Temple has been identified and is still in critical condition at the hospital.

At around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night, two officers responded to a call from The Kensington Apartments located at 400 Fryer's Creek Drive in Temple regarding strange noises being made and lights being on in an unoccupied apartment.

When those officers arrived, they found one man holding a knife and yelling at them. 53-year-old Alfonso Barrera Jimenez is accused with the offense of aggravated assault on a police officer. Jimenez is being held on $1 million bond.

The officers repeatedly told the Jimenez to drop his weapon, but he then threw the knife at them and pulled a second knife from his pocket and began charging toward them. Jimenez was then shot in the chest, and neither officer was injured.

Jimenez remains in serious but stable condition at Scott and White Hospital, and will be transferred to the Bell County Jail when he is released. The second suspect was found hiding in a closet and was taken into custody without incident.

The Texas Rangers along with the Temple Police Department are still trying to figure out what the two men were doing in that apartment and how they were able to get in.

"That is still part of the investigation that is still ongoing," Temple P.D. spokesman Chris Wilcox said.  "We're trying to determine if they were homeless individuals who were just looking for a place to stay, or if they had broken in there for some other reason, and again, that's just part of the investigation that we will determine as this goes forward."

Officer Bobby Cook, who fired the shot at Jimenez, has been placed on paid administrative leave as part of the Temple Police Department's standard procedure for officers who are involved in Police Action Shootings.

Jimenez was taken to Scott & White Hospital for his injury where officials say he is now in serious but stable condition.

Jimenez has been transferred to Bell County Sheriff's Deputy custody, but he is still in the hospital. Jimenez's room is being guarded by the Bell County Sheriff's Office
