SAPD: Shooting victim makes his own tourniquet, drives himself to hospital

San Antonio police still looking for answers

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are still trying to find out who shot a man and where the shooting happened.

The wounded man turned up Tuesday night at a gas station near Interstate 37 and SE Military.

Police say he was suffering from a gunshot wound in his arm, but had fashioned his own tourniquet.

Officers responded to a call about the shooting shortly before 10 p.m.

However, before they could get any information from the man, they say he jumped back into his car and drove himself to a hospital.

He later was transported to a trauma center by an ambulance.

Investigators hope to interview the man later to find out more information about the shooting.
