CCSO Deputy Faces Multiple Surgeries after Spring Branch Shooting
The son of a Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputy who was shot while serving a felony warrant in Spring Branch yesterday said his father faces multiple surgeries after the lower portion of his arm was almost completely severed during the shooting.
In a post on Comal County Constable’s Office Precinct 1 Facebook page, the son — who is not identified — blasted the media for inaccurately reporting the seriousness of Comal County Sheriff’s Deputy Eddy Luna’s injuries, which were described by CCSO yesterday as non-life-threatening.
He said Luna is currently undergoing a third surgery to repair the upper part of his arm.
“Doctors are trying their best to save his arm, but have also been honest with us along the way, so he’s definitely not out of the woods yet,” Luna’s son said.
“Also, as far as the media stating non-life-threatening injuries are complete idiots,” he said. “For the people who understand combat or have experienced combat, any time any arm or appendage is almost completely blown off and bleeding has to be controlled with two tourniquets, as well as being life-flighted, then life is on the line.”
Luna’s son described his father as being in severe pain when not under sedation.
Luna was shot at a residence in the 1400 block of Springwood in Spring Branch in the presence of other deputies. He was transported to University Hospital by AirLife.
A suspect is in custody but has not been publicly identified.
CCSO told MyCanyonLake.com they will share an update about Luna’s condition and the investigation to their Facebook page later today.
Luna, a graduate of New Braunfels High School, is a U.S. Army veteran who began his career with CCSO in 1991 as a corrections officer.
Since then he has served as a patrol deputy, a detective in the Criminal Investigations Division, and a warrants deputy.
