A Texas Department of Public Safety report says the agency's SWAT officers killed an 84-year-old woman last month after mistaking her for her son who had engaged authorities in a standoff at their San Antonio-area home.
Amelia Huron-Macias was shot March 7. Authorities say her son, Fernando Macias, shot at officers several times during the daylong standoff and faces three counts of attempted capital murder of a police officer. The report filed with the Texas attorney general's office says DPS officers were relieving a Bexar County SWAT team when the gunman fired.
The report says DPS officers, who had noted the suspect was wearing a red shirt, returned fire. Authorities later learned both the mother and son were wearing red shirts.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The standoff started after authorities tried to serve Macias with a mental health warrant.
