A witness told police the victim was talking to himself when he walked passed a man who thought the victim was directing his conversation towards him.

The man, along with a woman he was with, became offended and they both retrieved handguns from a gray/silver Chrysler 300, the witness told police.

While the man was sitting in his vehicle, the male suspect walked over and shot at him. The gunman went back to his vehicle and once more shot at the victim, according to police.

The suspects took off and are still on the run. The victim was able to drive down the street to San Antonio Fire Station No. 10 and was later taken to University Hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, police said.
