San Antonio’s police chief says a shooting that left a 17-year-old boy dead and his 13-year-old sister wounded was no random crime, but was “definitely targeted.”

Chief William McManus addressed members of the media shortly after the shooting which happened around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Officers found both teens after answering a call about the shooting at their home in the 400 block of Aransas Avenue.

17-year-old Greg Pina died at the scene.

His sister, who was hit twice by the gunfire, was stable when she was rushed to a hospital, McManus said.

He said the shots were fired by someone outside the home who intended to do harm.

“The individual walked up and knocked on the door, so it wasn’t random. It was definitely targeted,” McManus said.

Three other people, two adults and another sibling, also were inside the home at the time, but were not hurt.

McManus said investigators had a few motives in mind, although no arrests have been made.
