It happened Monday around 4:25 p.m.at a Quick Trip near the intersection of Preston Road and Spring Creek Parkway. Upon arrival, officers created a perimeter around the gas station, and set up orange hazard cones around a white auto with a bullet hole in the rear window. The man was then transported to a hospital in unknown condition.
Witnesses say a woman crashed her white Nissan Sentra and ran out of the vehicle at about 4:30 Monday afternoon. The woman who was driving jumped out and ran.
Brett Robinson, who works nearby, said, "There was a lot of continuous shots after another... but the first one was just, there was a big space [in between the shots] that's why we thought it was something else".
According to Plano police, an officer with their department was fueling up her patrol unit when she saw a disturbance.
Robinson and his co-worker, Joshua Cotten, caught the aftermath on their iPhones.
That's when the police officer is said to have stepped in and shot him.
"There's no telling what the intent of this suspect was to the victim". His relationship to the woman he allegedly opened fire on is unclear. "I think the officer's training and her skills involved in this was able to diffuse the situation and potentially save a life", said Officer David Tilley with Plano PD.
No other injuries have been reported.
Because this is an officer-involved shooting, the investigation has been handed over to the Texas Rangers.
Police recovered Amaya-Torres' firearm at the scene.
