SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are changing some details from a preliminary report given by Chief William McManus after an officer shot and killed Darrell Wayne Zemault Sr. on Tuesday while trying to take him into custody on warrants. The new information comes after officials reviewed the bodycam footage, and Mayor Ron Nirenberg called for a review of the San Antonio Police Department’s camera policy.
McManus initially reported an officer had been hit with a can of wood stain during the incident in the 100 block of Willee.
The officer had a welt over his eye and was covered in the stain, police said. However, after the officer gave his statement, he wasn’t sure how he had gotten injured, and he wasn’t sure if Zemault had intentionally hit him with a can or if the contact was incidental to the arrest, police said in an incident report released Wednesday night.
SAPD says that interaction was not captured on the officer’s bodycam.
Police say three undercover Repeat Offender Program detectives and two uniformed officers went to look for Zemault Tuesday afternoon to arrest him on two active warrants -- a third-degree felony warrant for repeated violation of a court order/conditions of bond and a Class A misdemeanor warrant for assault bodily injury-married.
The five officers approached Zemault’s home, and one detective told him he was a police officer and was there to arrest him, officials said.
Police said Zemault did not comply with officers and argued with the detective. The detective told the uniformed officers to handcuff Zemault, officials said.
Officials say Zemault grabbed a can of wood stain and moved away from the officers and ignored their commands. They said he actively resisted the officers' efforts to place him in handcuffs.
The officers used physical force but were unsuccessful, police say. One of the uniformed officers then struck Zemault with a baton but was also unsuccessful in subduing him.
Police say the gun holster of one of the detectives fell to the ground, and as the officers struggled to take Zemault into custody, Zemault grabbed the gun and took it out of the holster.
Officials say a struggle for the gun ensued after a detective noticed Zemault had the weapon. They say Zemault had his finger on the trigger and was “manipulating the gun in an attempt to point it at the officers.”
As the struggle continued, officials say the detective called out to the other officers and alerted them that Zemault had a gun.
Another detective feared Zemault would shoot, and the detective fired one round into Zemault’s back, SAPD says.
Police then immediately called emergency medical services and retrieved the weapon.
Zemault died from his injuries after the shooting.
The investigation findings from SAPD will be submitted to the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office for an independent investigation.

Student details horrifying incidents with OnlyFans stalker
A 20-year-old woman has reported she was being stalked by one of her OnlyFans subscribers, according to Yahoo News. The college student posted about the incident on Reddit, detailing the events that led to her involving the police.Hide
One evening, while staying at her parents’ home, the anonymous woman noticed an unfamiliar car parked outside the house around 2am. “I saw a figure in the car, and could tell they were looking at me, but I couldn’t make out their face because it was pitch black outside,” she explained in the post.Hide
When she started to head back indoors, the car moved into her driveway, causing her to sprint into the house and lock the door. The person never exited the vehicle while she was outside. However, the morning after, the woman found an envelope with her OnlyFans username written on it and $20 cash inside her mailbox.
A week later, the woman moved back to her college town and completely stopped posting content on her account. Instead, she opted for YouTube, which she felt would be a safer platform for vlogging her experiences. But, shortly after creating the account, her video camera was stolen from her car.
“When I got to my car, it had been ransacked and my vlogging camera was missing. I know, it’s my fault for leaving it in my car, but I was using it the night before and since I live in a gated area, I didn’t think I would be unsafe,” she wrote, following up with an unexpected turn.Hide
She then explained that she asked to view the security camera footage in her building’s parking lot, which revealed a man breaking into her car and then standing outside her bedroom window.
“After they got the camera, they walked around the duplex until stopping near my window. My bedroom faces an outside street, and my blinds are broken so it’s very easy to see in. I have a curtain, but it doesn’t cover my window all the way,” she wrote. “This person WATCHED ME SLEEP for an hour or so. I have no idea why they didn’t try to break in, but thank God they didn’t.”
The woman closed the post by explaining that she notified police about the incident and that she has relocated to a new area. As for whether she is continuing to post on OnlyFans or not, is unclear. The subscription-based adult content-sharing platform does not publicize a user’s address, but the student admitted she posted her Amazon wish list to the platform, which may have led to the subscriber finding her location.Hide Today’s top stories
