Police Chief Defends Marquise Jones Shooting, Outlines New Policies

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus broke his silence on the 2014 fatal shooting of Marquise Jones during a tense City Council B session Wednesday, saying the off-duty police officer who shot Jones was not at fault.

Jones, a 23-year-old African-American man, was shot and killed by SAPD officer Robert Encina in the drive-thru of Chacho’s and Chalucci’s on the city’s near-Northeast side.
