3 people shot in front of young children inside Kirby mobile home

Gunmen were looking for drugs, police say

SAN ANTONIO – Two men and a woman were shot and wounded by intruders inside a Kirby home while several young children were present. 

The three victims all underwent surgery early Wednesday and are expected to survive, according to Chief Kevin Bois with the Kirby Police Department. He said one man was shot five times.

The shootings happened shortly before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Springfield Meadows mobile home park, located in the 4700 block of Surveyor Drive.

Witnesses told them the gunmen approached a woman who was smoking a cigarette outside a mobile home, then forced her back inside.

They ended up shooting a different woman along with the two men in a bedroom.

Bois said there were two other adults present at the time, including the woman from the porch, as well as four or five children under the age of 7. None of them suffered any gunshot wounds.

However, Bois said a few of the children were so shaken up that they were taken to a hospital to be checked out,

He said he does not believe the shootings were random. Instead it looks like this crime was drug-related.

Several hours after the shootings, detectives executed a search warrant at the mobile home, looking for additional evidence including any drugs that remained, Bois said.

He said although the gunmen were looking for drugs, it did not appear that they left with any.

Witnesses described as two men, dressed all in black with hoods and, possibly, something covering their faces.
