Default German dispatch raider vs Texas troops

During the Salerno Bay Landings on 9th September 1943, did Texas Troops kill a German dispatch raider?

Regarding the question if Texan troops killed a German motorcyclist at Salerno.

I am aware of US Rangers killing the gaurd that was sitting on the back of a motorcycle, which was carrying a German officer in the side car. The gaurd was killed when he tried to go for his weapon, the bullet also hit the driver in the arm. Both the driver and the officer were captured. This was the first German vehicle captured by Americans at Salerno.
