MULESHOE, TX (KCBD) -

A Muleshoe Police Officer is recovering after being shot twice during a domestic violence call on Friday.

Police Chief Brian Frieda says the shooting took place Friday evening, just after 11:30 p.m. Sgt. Steve Bartley, 35, was wearing a bulletproof vest when he was shot, and most of the damage was sustained to that piece of equipment.

Bartley arrived at the residence and was confronted by a man later identified as Juan Mendoza Quezada, 44.

Texas DPS says Bartley was shot twice, once in the hip and once in the chest. Sgt. Bartley returned fire, critically wounding Quezada. Both Quezada and Bartley were removed from the residence by ambulances to the Muleshoe Area Medical Center.

Bartley was transported to University Medical Center, treated and released.

Quezada was transported to Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock in critical condition, but was stable as of Tuesday afternoon.

Texas DPS says the investigation has been turned over to the Texas Rangers and the 287th District Attorney's office.  They say the investigation is ongoing in the preliminary stages and more information will be forthcoming when the Texas Rangers complete the investigation.

All charges are pending at this time.
