SAPD: Shooting suspect barricades self inside West Side home during standoff with police

One person was injured and hospitalized from the incident

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are currently involved in a standoff with a shooting suspect who is barricaded inside of his residence on the West Side.

The incident began around 3 p.m., Sunday, on Braddock St and General Bragg Street.

Police were initially called to the scene for a shooting with a hit. After officers arrived, they found the suspect had fired a shotgun at his ex-girlfriend’s house.

There were five people inside of his ex-girlfriend’s home at the time shots were fired and one person was hit in the shoulder. Their injury was deemed non-life threatening.

The shooter then fled back to his own residence, further down the street from his ex-girlfriend’s home, and barricaded himself from police.

Officers said they set up a perimeter outside of his residence and have tried for hours to make contact with him. However, the man has not been very cooperative as of yet.

Police said they will stay at the scene for as long as it takes and are still trying to make contact. The man is expected to face four counts of deadly conduct and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, if the standoff ends peacefully.

Further details are limited at this time but we’ll bring more updates as they become available.
