SAN ANTONIO – A man was found in a car with a gunshot wound after he had been restrained at a North Side home for more than 24 hours, police said.

Officers pulled the vehicle over in the 4700 block of Blanco Road around 7 p.m. Wednesday after police received a call for a possible shooting.

While driving past the scene, officers saw several people loading a body into a white car.

The victim, 25, was in the front passenger seat and had a gunshot wound on his left foot and another wound on his right leg, which appeared to be a possible stab wound.

Officers said the victim would not answer any questions about the incident.

Three other people inside the car were arrested on possession charges, police said. A search warrant was obtained and officers discovered a handgun and drugs inside the car.

Police also found apparent bloody clothing and a rope that was used to bind the victim, officers said.

He had been assaulted and restrained at a home in 500 block of Craigmont Lane for more than 24 hours, according to SAPD.

Police believe it occurred over a drug deal.

The three people arrested, ages 26, 28 and 32, are listed as suspects for aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. They were booked for possession because the victim refused to cooperate.
