SAN ANTONIO -

A stolen cell phone may have led to a double shooting at a home in the 6300 block of Village Cliff Monday evening, according to San Antonio police.

Officers were called to the home around 7 p.m. after shots were fired and hit a 16-year-old girl and a 32-year-old man. Both victims were shot in the leg and taken to the hospital.

Police said the shooter was a man in his 20s who told officers he opened fire after an argument over a cell phone and because he felt threatened.

The shooter was detained and police have not said if any charges would be filed.
