SAN ANTONIO -- SAPD released a Facebook post on Officer Robert Deckard's condition Monday afternoon.
Deckard was shot in the head on Dec. 8 during a high-speed chase with armed robbery suspects.
The process of attempting to cool Deckard to allow his brain to reach a comfortable pressure did not go as planned, according to the post. A surgeon said the pressure was not relieved due to additional bleeding in the brain.
Doctors will begin to warm Deckard again but said the prognosis for him surviving are slim.

The doctors stated that they have reached the point where they have to start warming up Officer Deckard s body temperature because it is not safe to keep him cold any longer. Unfortunately, this cooling down procedure was never able to get the pressure in his brain to a comfortable level. The surgeon believes the pressure was not relieved due to additional bleeding in the brain. However, it is too dangerous to do a CAT scan to find out for sure. Doctors will begin the warming process today but the prognosis for Officer Deckard surviving this process is slim. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
