Police not sure if victim knew the shooter

San Antonio police aren’t sure if the shooter knew the victim.

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are trying to find out more about a shooting at a Northwest Side apartment complex early Friday.

They say the 31-year-old man was just about to leave the Tivona Apartments on his motorcycle when he was approached by a woman in the parking lot around 3 a.m.

Witnesses told police the woman walked up to him, said something in Spanish, then shot him after he got off his motorcycle.

The man was hit in his abdomen and rushed to University Hospital by ambulance.

At last check, police said, he was in serious condition.

Officers searched the area for the woman, who was last seen heading toward the back of the apartment complex, but they did not find her.

They say they’re not sure whether the two know each other, or why she shot him.

Investigators hope to learn more once they have a chance to talk to the man.
