A man with a concealed handgun permit opened fire on a couple of would-be beer thieves on the Northeast Side Sunday afternoon.

San Antonio police said shots were fired around 4 p.m. in the 2000 block of Austin Highway.

According to San Antonio police, two men inside the store attempted a beer run, but never made it out of the store with the brew.

The customer reportedly followed the pair out of the store and shot at their truck as they drove away.

Police said they did not expect to file charges against the customer, but were searching for the alleged beer bandits.
