West Side shootings are related, San Antonio police say

2 victims in their 20s found within miles of each other

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say that two late night shootings on the West Side are connected.

Officers found the first victim around 11 p.m. Thursday at a convenience store in the 6800 block of W. Military.

That man, who is in his 20s, had a gunshot wound in his leg.

He told police there were two men involved in the shooting and that it happened at a nearby apartment complex.

When police went to that apartment complex in the 2400 block of Pinn Road, they learned that there was an argument over vehicle parts. That argument resulted in an exchange of gunfire as both sides shot at each other, according to police.

A second shooting was reported minutes later in the 200 block of Jesse Street, where they found a man with a gunshot wound on his left side. That victim was one of the suspects involved in the initial shooting, police said.

The suspect was taken to University Hospital for his injuries. He was not identified as of Friday.
