SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police officers are searching for a man accused of shooting another man in the backyard of a home on the East Side.

Officers responded to the shooting call around 1:30 a.m. Monday in the 1100 block of Center St.

Officers said a man was shot at least three times while he was in a studio in the backyard. He was transported to Brooke Army Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Before the shooting, the 20-year-old victim and his family were dropped off at the home. He walked into the studio alone while the others went to the main residence, police said.

The family heard multiple gunshots coming from the back of the property and found the man in the studio with multiple gunshot wounds.

Witnesses saw a suspect wearing all black running from the studio.

Shell casings were found inside and outside of the studio, police said.
