'I thought I was going to die': Masked men pistol-whip, shoot victim

Victim says men tried to force way into his home

SAN ANTONIO – A man police said was shot in the calf Saturday night after refusing to give up his property during an armed robbery slowly entered his home supported by crutches, with parts of his body still covered in blood.

Speaking to KSAT on the condition of anonymity, he recounted the moment a masked man approached him while he was trying to unlock his front door around 10:55 p.m. Saturday night at Oak Hills Terrace Townhomes on the 6400 block of Wurzbach Road.

He said the masked man shouted demands to allow him inside his home, but when he refused, he said a second masked man ran toward him.

Still shaken up Sunday morning, he recalled the warning one of the men gave him before opening fire.

"Bro, we will shoot you! Give us everything!" the victim said one of the suspects told him.

He said the men pistol-whipped him, then shot at him, striking him in his leg. The two suspects fled in a black vehicle with some of the victim's jewelry, which he claims include a Rolex, several chains and a bracelet.

Surveillance video of the incident was handed over to police. The victim said it shows the masked men and the license plate of their getaway vehicle. 

The case remains under investigation.
