An employee of a South Side sandwich shop was found shot behind the counter early Friday morning, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called just after 8 a.m. to a Subway restaurant at the Espada North Shopping Center in the 11600 block of SE Loop 410, not far from Roosevelt Avenue after receiving reports of a woman injured.

According to police, someone entered the store and found the female employee, a woman in her 30s or 40s, seriously wounded.

Police said the victim was taken to an area hospital in serious condition. Her name was not released.
