SAN ANTONIO – Police say a 17-year-old was cut with a machete during a confrontation with some other men early Thursday morning.

Officers were called to the victim's home in the 500 block of West Lullwood around 4:30 a.m.

A witness says she saw the suspects ditch the machete in a storm drain near the 400 block of West Hildebrand.

Police searched for the weapon, but did not find it. Investigators said officers did, however, find a gun near the victim's house, but were not sure how it fit in with the incident.
