SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police are trying to find out more about a person who fired shots into a car downtown, wounding four people.

The shooting happened around 11 p.m. Monday at East Market Street and Tower of the Americas Way, near the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Police said the people inside the car had been involved in some type of altercation or argument about a block from there with the occupants of a white pickup truck.

At some point, a person in the pickup truck fired multiple shots at the Toyota Camry, wounding four men between the ages of 20 and 23.

There was a fifth person in the car, a woman who was not hit by the gunfire.

Officer Douglas Greene, a public information officer for SAPD, said the incident put a lot of other people, including tourists, in jeopardy. 

“This is in our downtown,” he said. “There are always people out and about. We’re thankful that not more people were injured in this incident."

The driver of the Camry, a 23-year-old man, suffered life-threatening wounds.

The three other victims all were stable when they were taken to hospitals by ambulance, Greene said.

Police said the pickup truck was last seen heading down the nearby access road of Interstate 37. The truck is described as having black after market rims, a black after market push bumper, a white fiber glass bed cover and a black gas cap with an emblem on the driver’s side front panel.

Greene said although one victim has refused to cooperate with investigators, they were able to question other witnesses about what happened. 

Anyone with any knowledge of the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP.

Tips can also be texted to CRIMES (274637) or by visiting the Crime Stoppers website.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
