A woman who had been shot in the face managed to knock on the door of northeast San Antonio home for help before collapsing on the sidewalk.
San Antonio police were called to the 5400 block of Villa Mercedes around 1:30 a.m. Monday.
They said people who live in a home there told them they answered a knock on the door and found a woman who had been shot, lying on the sidewalk.
Police said it appeared the woman was shot one time in the face with a .32 caliber weapon.
She was rushed to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment.
Police said she was not able to offer very much information about the person who shot her, only that the shooter fled in a white car.
The shooting victim is believed to be in her 30s. However, police said it did not appear that she lived in the neighborhood because no one seemed to know her.
