Officers had tried to stop the Suzuki SX4, but the driver did not comply. The two passengers bailed out but the driver didn’t.

SEGUIN, Texas — A man was shot and killed by police in Seguin following a traffic stop early Thursday morning.

Officers attempted a traffic stop on a man driving a Suzuki SX4 around 1:46 a.m. on N State Hwy 123 Bypass and Mockingbird Lane in Seguin.

The driver, who was identified as Alejandro Saucedo, did not comply and drove to the area of S. Milam and Live Oak where he finally stopped and the two passengers bailed out of the vehicle.

Saucedo still refused to exit the vehicle. The passengers told officers that he had a weapon. Negotiators tried to get him to exit his vehicle, but he continued to refuse. 

Around 3:00 a.m., the Guadalupe SWAT team was activated. They continued negotiations with Saucedo and at some point, gas was deployed. 

Then, at around 4:43 a.m., shots were exchanged between Saucedo and police.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Seguin PD Criminal Investigation Division and the Texas Rangers are still investigating.
