San Antonio Police Department: Critical Incident Video Release of Edward Nandin Shooting
Consistent with the Department’s Critical Incident Video Release Procedure, the Department, today, released a video from an officer-involved shooting that occurred on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.
Below is a brief synopsis of the critical incident:
On January 24, 2023, at approximately 10:50 pm, two officers were patrolling in the same vehicle and stopped in the parking lot of a motel at the 2100 block of SW Loop 410.
The officers contacted the occupants of a van that was parked in the parking lot. The initiating officer asked the suspect, who was sitting in the driver’s seat, to step out of the vehicle because he observed knives in his immediate vicinity.
While trying to identify the suspect, the partnering officer asked the suspect what he had in his jacket pocket and was handed a black pouch by the suspect. The partnering officer found a plastic baggie inside the pouch containing what he believed to be narcotics residue.
The partnering officer attempted to detain the suspect and place him in handcuffs when the suspect physically resisted and pulled a handgun from a holster. The suspect fired two rounds at the partnering officer. The initiating officer ran around the van to assist the partnering officer who was struggling with the armed suspect.
The initiating officer fired two rounds, striking the suspect.
Officers immediately began performing life-saving measures, however, the 50-year-old suspect, Edward Nandin, died at the scene from his injuries. No officers were injured during this incident.
As with all officer-involved shootings, the District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the incident.
