San Antonio, TX- A veteran police officer patrolling the Northwest Side for several robbery suspects Thursday shot at and grazed a man's forehead after fearing he was reaching for a weapon -- although it later was determined he only was holding his keys.

Police said San Antonio Fear Free Environment, or SAFFE, Officer Robert Rosales, who has been on the force 22 years, feared the man was grabbing a weapon because he saw him holding something black while reaching inside his jacket.

The man was taken to University Hospital in good condition.
