Police find Chevy Tahoe believed to be linked to SE Side shooting

SUV located in Mission Trail Baptist Hospital parking lot

SAN ANTONIO – An SUV believed to be involved in a shooting late Thursday night at a Southeast Side apartment complex has been found at a hospital parking lot, San Antonio police said.

A bullet-riddled black Chevy Tahoe was found in the parking lot of Mission Trail Baptist Hospital, police said.

According to a preliminary police report, Pricilla Guerra, 27, was shot and is being treated at the hospital. They said that it appeared she was driven there in the Tahoe, possibly by the person who shot her.

The driver of the SUV hasn't been found, police said.

Officers first found out about the shooting around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, when they responded to a call at an apartment complex in the 6800 block of Pecan Valley.

Witnesses told police that several people had been involved in an argument and that another woman, Juanita Limon-Sotello, 34, had told them to leave. 

The police report said the argument continued in the parking lot. At some point, the man in the SUV fired shots, striking Guerra in the back, police said.

As the shooter sped away, he also ran over Limon-Sotello's leg, breaking her ankle, officers at the scene said.

Police thought they spotted the shooter's SUV shortly after the shooting and tried to stop it.

The driver refused to pull over, but eventually stopped when he crashed into another car near Hackberry and Fair Avenue, police said.

A woman in the car was injured and was taken to a hospital.

Officers determined that the driver involved in the crash was not the man they were seeking, and his Chevy Tahoe wasn't as the scene of the shooting.

Police arrested him on charges related to the chase and the crash.

They are still looking for the man involved in the shooting.
