Man Shot By Bastrop County Deputies Identified
The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office has identified the deputies and the man shot by them after responding to a 911 call Wednesday afternoon.
The man the deputies shot has been identified as 70-year-old Jose Cantu.
The deputies were responding to a 911 at a home located at 121 Stony Mont Drive, off of C.R. 110 in Del Valle.
The Sheriff's Office says that when they arrived to investigate a domestic disturbance Cantu was holding a gun, which he pointed toward the deputies – and that's when they shot him.

Cantu is in the hospital in critical condition. The officers were not injured.
