Austin, Texas — At approximately 12:03 a.m., Austin 9-1-1 received a “Gun Hotshot” call in the area of 6300 E. U.S. 290 HWY Svrd WB. A motorist stated that they were being shot at by a pursuing vehicle. This caller also said that the suspect vehicle continued to follow and shoot, even as the driver was attempting to flee down various streets. At approximately 12:05 a.m. a two-officer APD unit observed a vehicle and made contact with the victim driver that had been shot at.

The victim was uninjured and provided officers with a description of the suspect’s vehicle and its last known direction of travel. Minutes later, the officers were traveling behind the suspect vehicle in the 6300 block of E. U.S. 290 Hwy Svrd WB and activated their emergency lights. As the officers stopped the suspect vehicle and exited their patrol vehicle, they immediately took gunfire from the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Gregorio Sarmiento. The officers returned fire. During the exchange, one of the officers and the suspect were both struck. Officers immediately requested Austin-Travis County EMS on scene for medical assistance.

The officers involved in this critical incident are identified as:
Officer: Jon Riordan (injured), 2 years of service
Officer: Kingly Kong, 1 year of service

Officer Riordan was in stable condition after undergoing surgery the morning of the incident and has since been released from the hospital. Sarmiento was listed in critical, but stable condition the morning of the incident. Gregorio Sarmiento has been charged with two counts of attempted capital murder, with a total bond of $1 million dollars.

  1. I hate to say this, but any Texans living in that area need to get the fuck out of Austin. Its a city in late stage liberalism where laws only protect those with money, anarcho-tyranny. This man will probably be out of prison in 2 or 3 years, terrorizing citizens who just want to make a living. All while the rich and powerful residents of Austin post woke comments on twitter in their gated communities. Arm yourself and resist liberalism at all costs. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

  2. Show Me Your F’Kn Hands Magazine June 2021 published a story by Journalist Eugene Tackleberry who wrote:

    “Unnamed Sources have Reported that To keep morale up of Officers In lieu of the DFTP after Peaceful Rioters, Peaceful Vandals and Peaceful looters pillaged and destroyed property in major cities in 2020, that an Executive Order Was Quietly and Unceremoniously passed on Jan 19, 2021 at 11pm that allows for police officers who kill a suspect in a shoot out to personally keep the weapon as souvenirs, of which the dead suspect used against the police officer. Executive order : “10-99 Your Gun Is Now Mine” executive order, where a cop has a first dibs on all contraband of dead suspect shooters from a shoot out has been wink an nod to officers that if they want to keep a souvenir gun after as shoot out, it’s now their right as an officer who has been in the line of fire.”


  3. America: guy getting shot at randomly is cool AF. Cop took a round and dumped on the perp is cool AF. Just another shootout in Texas. The 911 caller probably went to Whole Foods after to shop and the wounded cop was probably deep into a conversation with his wife from the hospital when he finally says "oh I just got shot so I'll be home a little later babe".

  4. Caller sounds like an idiot. Nobody can answer a direct question. I swear. Someone could ask another if it’s raining outside and the answer you get in return is… seven. Unbelievable anymore

  5. Good thing that guy was an absolute terrible shot … both of those officers could have been in trouble! Glad everything worked out

  6. The criminal is charged with two counts of attempted capital murder, with video of him getting out and shooting at police without any provocation, and they still set a bond? WTF?
