SHERMAN,TX-- A man shot by a Sherman Police Officer Wednesday night has now been identified as a Sherman Firefighter and part time bondsman.

Sherman police have now called in Texas Rangers to investigate, since both the officer and the man who was shot are city employees.

We went to the home on the 800 block of South Gribble Street and spoke to a man who say's he had just arrived at his girlfriends home, when he witnessed the whole thing.

 He says he was standing by his car in the driveway as they surrounded the place.

"Two went to the front door one went to the back door." Shane Webb tells KTEN.

That's when Webb say's he saw a fourth man, in plain clothes walking towards officers.

" He never identified himself ever." Webb tells us.

Police and Webb say they never heard the man exchange words with the officer before the shooting.

"I didn't hear nothing and I heard him after he hit the ground and (he) said, " Oh I'm a bounty hunter", I heard that (when he said that)." Say's Webb.

Webb says he saw the man walk around a building on the side of the house, approach the officer, and reach for something and that's when the officer fired.

Sherman police say the officer opened fire because he thought the man had a gun.

"As the recovery agent approached the officers location the officer observed what appeared to be a weapon in the recovery agent's hand" Assistant Police Chief Ken Francis, announced at a press conference Thursday afternoon.

Although, according to Webb, who says he was standing less than 50 feet away, he never saw one. "I didn't see the guy with a weapon at all."

The Bondsman was taken to a Plano hospital, where, as of Thursday he was said to be in stable condition. The Officer is on paid administrative leave. No names are being released.
