2 men shot during gathering at Southwest Side home

Police find suspect, passed out

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are scratching their heads after an unusual discovery at a Southwest Side home.

Officers answered a call shortly after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 2600 block of Quintana Road and found two people with gunshot wounds along with another person, the alleged shooter, who had passed out.

They were not sure early on what led to the violence.

Officers say six people in all were inside the home when the suspect pulled out a gun and began shooting.

One man was wounded in his face and was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. The second victim was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center with a wound to the upper body, police said.

Authorities say the suspect misfired at a third victim and at one point exited the house and fired two rounds into the air.

Police, however, were not able to say right away why the shooter had passed out.

SAPD said the suspect was taken to a hospital by ambulance although they did not see any visible injuries on him.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that drugs or alcohol may have been involved.
