A man in his 20s was wounded during a shootout outside a home on the city’s Northeast Side late Tuesday night, San Antonio police said.

SAN ANTONIO – A man in his 20s who was urinating outside his grandparents’ house was wounded in a shooting late Tuesday night, San Antonio police said.

The incident occurred just before 11 p.m. at a home in the 5200 block of Roundtable Drive, not far from Midcrown Drive and Walzem Road.

According to police, the victim had just arrived at his grandparents’ house and was urinating outside the home as he usually does when he arrives late, when a gray vehicle pulled up nearby. That’s when, police said, a man got out of the passenger side of the vehicle and fired at the victim, hitting him once in the calf as he returned fire.

Police said they think there was a chance the victim’s gunfire struck the suspect, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Officers did not give a description of the suspect or a model for the vehicle.

A motive for the shooting is not currently known.
