A man was shot in the face in east San Antonio early Tuesday morning, then made it more than a mile away to call for help, police said.

Multiple gunshots were reported around 3:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Winslow Street, but the victim called for help from his aunt's home in the 800 block of St. James.

"I don't see nobody, like I say. I heard the noise," said a man who lives near the home on Winslow. "I got running to outside, and all I see is one car. It's driving too fast, he hit my truck."

Police said the man who was shot, Oscar Rocha, told them he drove himself away from the shooting and struck two vehicles as he fled.

Rocha had a gunshot wound in the face with an exit wound on his neck, police said.

He was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center and was expected to survive, police said.

Police interviewed witnesses and the owner of the home on Wilson, but did not name a suspect.
