Man in critical condition after being shot at motel

Officers were called just after 5 a.m. to Studio 6 motel near I-35, Laredo Street

SAN ANTONIO – A local man is in the hospital in a critical condition following a shooting a motel early Monday morning, San Antonio police said.

The shooting was reported just after 5 a.m. at a Studio 6 motel near Interstate 35 and Laredo Street, just south of downtown.

According to police, officers arrived to find shell casings in the parking lot and a trail of blood from a room, but no victim.

Witnesses told police they saw a car speeding away from the motel. Authorities said a short time later, a man in his 30s with a gunshot wound to his stomach reportedly showed up at a children’s hospital. That person has since been transferred to University Hospital for his injuries.

Police said the victim was not a registered guest, but that he was one of roughly 10 people in the room who scattered after the shooting. Authorities say one person ran to a gas station and told them to call 911, then disappeared. Someone else dropped off the victim at the hospital, then left, police said.

Investigators said there were a lot of illegal drugs in the room and bullet holes in the bathroom door. So far, no arrests have been made in the case. Police said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
