“I did a U-turn in the middle of the street because I was going to go to the hospital,” she said.

Officers responded at around 12:45 p.m. Sunday to the 1500 block of Robertson Avenue after receiving multiple reports about a shooting.

When officers arrived, they discovered that an off-duty Copperas Cove officer was involved in the shooting.

The officer was not injured during the incident, but Murray was taken to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Murray said after she and the officer took turns racing past each other, she finally stopped to confront the man.

During the argument that ensued, she says she was holding her side, which was in pain, and the man pulled out a gun.

She says the man didn’t identify himself as an officer until after he started shooting. »
