Homeowner, 2 men in car exchange gunfire on NE Side

Driver critically injured; police seek passenger in shooting on Glendora


SAN ANTONIO – A homeowner and two men exchanged gunfire Thursday afternoon on the city's Northeast Side, police said.

Police spokesman Officer Doug Greene said a Cadillac with two men drove up to a home around 12:30 p.m. at Glendora and Waikiki Drive, where they got into an altercation with the homeowner over some kind of property.

"That possibly they were looking for, or that was owed to them by the homeowner," Greene said.

The homeowner went into the home and returned with a gun and fired five to six shots at the car, Greene said. The house was hit once, but no weapon was found.

One of the bullets struck the driver in the stomach, Greene said. The victim was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center with a life-threatening injury.

The homeowner's wife and several children were in the house, but weren't injured, Greene said.

The passenger ran from the scene and is being sought by police, Greene said.

The Cadillac crashed into a wooden fence and hit a home near the shooting scene, Greene said.

The homeowner and his wife were taken downtown for questioning to determine if he will be charged, Greene said.
