A family says things are “not adding up” after their loved one was shot on the side of the road after an altercation in traffic. The shooter was an off-duty sheriff’s deputy, and witnesses say that they saw the deceased man’s body still in the driver’s seat after being shot in the chest. Instead of being arrested, the shooter is now on administrative leave.
On Saturday, August 31, Mathew Jackson, 29, and off-duty Bexar County deputy Anthony Thomas were involved in an incident — presumably a minor traffic collision — which caused them both to pull over to the side of the road. Both men were headed home from their jobs. Jackson worked as a waiter and Thomas worked as a security guard.
A minor collision between their vehicles occurred, and an “altercation” followed, according to investigators. Details are not known, but the encounter ended with Thomas shooting multiple shots at Jackson, hitting him fatally in the chest.
