SAN ANTONIO – A man who was shot in the legs late Wednesday night was uncooperative with officers and was taken to an area hospital for his wounds, San Antonio police said.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. in the 5400 block of South Flores Street, not far from East Southcross on the city’s South Side.

According to police, officers arrived to find the 41-year-old man with gunshot wounds to both legs.

A preliminary police report states the victim told officers that multiple men entered his apartment, displayed handguns and robbed him.

That’s when one of the suspects shot him once in both legs. The man told offices that he did not know or recognize the suspects, the report states.

Investigators said the bullet appears to have passed through one leg into the other. The wounded man was taken to University Hospital for his injuries.

His wounds are not expected to be life-threatening.

Officials initially said the victim was uncooperative with officers, however.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.

The investigation is ongoing.
