SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say they were involved in a standoff with a shooting suspect after he barricaded himself inside a Northeast Side apartment late Tuesday night.

The incident occurred around 9:15 p.m. at the OakRidge Apartment Homes in the 11200 block of Perrin Beitel Road, not far from Wurzbach Parkway.

According to police, officers were called to the area after receiving word of a man shot.

Police said when they arrived, officers found the victim inside a car wounded, with a child. The man told officers that he had been shot after going to visiting someone at the apartments.

Authorities said they believed the suspect had barricaded himself inside one of the apartments, so out of caution, they called the department’s SWAT team.

The 39-year-old man was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center by EMS for his injuries. CPS took custody of the child. He is listed in stable condition.
