SAN ANTONIO – Two men were hospitalized after a shooting on the East Side Tuesday, San Antonio police said.

San Antonio police responded to a call for a shooting around 7:15 p.m. in the 900 block of Poinsettia, near North Grimes Street and North Mel Waiters Way.

The incident began with an argument between a 30-year-old man and his neighbor. The woman told the man that she was going to call someone, and that’s then the suspect arrived, police said.

The suspect confronted the man in front of a home and shot him several times, police said.

Another man who was walking on the street was also hit in the shooting. He told officers he was walking to a friend’s house and heard an argument and shots ring out. He was struck in the right leg.

Both men were transported to Brooke Army Medical Center.

The male neighbor’s condition is unknown at this time.

Police said Tuesday night that their injuries are not life-threatening.

No arrests have been made in the shooting.
