SAN ANTONIO -- The Olmos Park police officer accused of shooting a friend during an argument over sexual partners has resigned from the force, according to authorities.

Twenty-nine-year-old Frankie Salazar is facing a criminal charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after, police say, he shot a man three times inside his home on Nov. 30, 2013. The two men were talking about swapping girlfriends when Salazar became uneasy and shot the man in the chest with a .45 caliber handgun, according to the police report.

The east-side shooting happened near Interstate 35 and N. Palmetto Street while Salazar was off-duty. The officer was immediately suspended by Olmos Park police.

The victim was transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center where he later died.

Salazar told police investigators he was defending himself after being attacked.
