SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are searching for a 35-year-old man who they say shot an 18-year-old woman in the leg early Tuesday morning.
Officers were called around 12:30 a.m. to the 4500 block of Schertz Road, not far from Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive after receiving word of a person wounded.
According to police, officers first thought the shooting may have been self-inflicted, but they now say they are looking for a male suspect.
Police said the suspect fled with the weapon prior to officers arriving on the scene. His last known address was checked by east patrol, but he was not found.
A tourniquet was applied to the victim’s right calf and she was taken to an area hospital in stable condition for a non-life-threatening injury. Both the San Antonio Police Department and EMS responded to the call.
When found, the man will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
