Alva Stem Jr Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death
***OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING***
At approximately 10:07 a.m. The Waco Police Department (WPD) received a call in regards to a shooting that had just occurred. The caller reported that someone had just shot a man at an apartment complex at 701 Rambler.
When WPD officers arrived, they found the victim dead at the scene with two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Officers also learned that the suspect had barricaded himself inside his apartment, so they immediately requested WPD SWAT and negotiators to the scene.
While staging and preparing to make contact with the suspect, the suspect came outside his apartment and shortly thereafter discharged his weapon, resulting in officers returning fire and striking the suspect. Officers slowly engaged the suspect who was still alive and armed. Once it was safe to do so, officers secured the suspect and attempted to perform life saving measures until AMR was summoned to the area. The suspect was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
No officers were hurt during this incident. A total of nine officers discharged their weapons in response to the suspect’s actions. These officers have been placed on administrative leave as is normal procedures during Officer Involved Shooting Investigations. The officer involved shooting investigation will be conducted jointly by the Texas Rangers and WPD’s Special Crimes Unit. The initial shooting call will be investigated by WPD’s Special Crimes Unit.
The victim in the original shooting has been identified as 65-year-old Alva Stem Jr. The suspect who was shot by officers and died from his injuries will not be identified at this time, pending identification and notification of next of kin
