Leading the police on a chase.

There was some excitement all the way out to Boerne this morning.
When police arrived at a home in the 11000 block of Whisper Willow they found the suspect armed with a gun. Police say the suspect then set the house on fire and made a getaway on his motorcycle.

SAPD followed in patrol cars along with Boerne police and Kendall County Sheriff's deputies.

Authorities say during the chase the gunman turned towards police several times and pointed his weapon towards them but it wasn't until the suspect jumped off his bike that they reacted.

"He jumped off his motorcycle and was running along the bike." SAPD Police Chief William McManus said.

The cops took him out when he pointed his gun at them.

The guy also threatened his family with a sword. And the chase was a low-speed chase, though it isn't clear from this story if that low speed lasted all the way out to Boerne.
