SAN ANTONIO – A 38-year-old man is recovering after San Antonio police say he was shot in the knee late Tuesday night.

Officers responded to a shooting call just before 11 p.m. near the 4800 block of Gus Eckert Road on the Northwest Side.

Police said a woman called 911 after she heard a man yell that he had been shot.

The man was shot by a suspect, who is between 25-35 years old, at the location on Gus Eckert and was driven to University Hospital, police said.

He told officers that he went to visit someone at the location and the suspect showed up, according to SAPD.

SAPD has not released details on what led to the shooting but a preliminary report states the victim chased the suspect, and that’s when the suspect opened fire.

The man told police that he did not know the suspect. It is unclear what charges, if any, the gunman is facing.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
