AUSTIN -- Jail records show the two men involved in an officer-involved shooting over the weekend are in the Travis County Jail.
As of Monday morning, green spray paint lines stretched up the drive at the business plaza off Neil Thompson Drive in North Austin. A glass door to a company called Johnson Supply was boarded up.
According to KVUE’s exclusive partner, the Austin American-Statesman, arrest affidavits show Austin James Hanlon, 21, and Miguel Angel Macias, 46, broke into the shop Friday night. Austin Police Department Officer Shane Cunningham pulled up around midnight as the two were walking out. They had two large trash cans filled with tools.
According to affidavits, when Hanlon and Macias saw Officer Cunningham, they got into a car. Hanlon sat in the passenger seat and Macias got in behind the wheel. Macias hit the gas and drove toward Officer Cunningham, hitting his patrol car.
The papers don't say that Officer Cunningham shot at the car, but Saturday morning APD Chief Art Acevedo confirmed that one of his officers did open fire while in response to the burglary. The bullets pierced the driver's side of the car, injuring Macias. Acevedo says dashboard cameras captured the entire incident.
"When we release that video it will be a very powerful tool for the prosecutor, the grand jury and ultimately the people of the city to see exactly what happened," explained Acevedo.
According to Travis County jail record0,s Hanlon and Macias are still in jail. Hanlon is charged with burglary of a building. He's being held on a $20,000 bond. Deputies at the jail say Macias is facing two charges, including burglary of a building and aggravated assault off a public servant. Combined, his bonds are set at $280,000.
APD hasn’t released details of the injuries Macias suffered. He went to University Medical Center Brackenridge immediately following the shooting.
According to jail records Macias was booked in jail by Saturday evening. State records show he has a lengthy criminal history stretching back to at least 1996.
Chief Acevedo says the officer involved is on paid administrative duty, which is standard procedure.
