Victim in attack has concealed handgun license, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police said a road rage incident between a driver and five other men led to a confrontation at a North Side apartment complex that ended with one of the five men held at gunpoint until police arrived.

Police said the incident between the driver and the other men began on Highway 281 and ended in the parking lot of the Ravinia Apartments.

The driver told police the five men got out of their vehicle and threw a rock through his car window, striking him in the head.

Police investigators said the driver, who has his concealed handgun license, got out of his car and began shooting at the men, who fled on foot. None of the bullets reportedly struck the men as they fled.
