Kennedy retrial set for April 1
A Comal County man convicted several years ago of having a shootout with a police officer will finally have his day in court, again.
Steve Thomas, Comal County court administrator, said he set a date of April 1 for a retrial in Michael Patrick Kennedy’s assault case. Judge Jack Robison of the 207th judicial district will hear the case, Thomas said.
In 2006, Kennedy, 56, of Bulverde, pleaded guilty to a March 3, 2005 shooting in which he allegedly fired 30 to 50 rounds at Schertz police officer Richard Kunz during a traffic stop on Interstate 35. Kunz returned fire and shot Kennedy three times.
