SAN ANTONIO – A man in his 30s shot multiple times on the South Side is hospitalized in critical condition, and officers are still looking for the gunman, according to San Antonio police.

Officers were called to the intersection of Tabor Avenue and West Southcross Boulevard for lots of shots fired around 9:55 p.m. on Monday.

Police say the victim was pulling out of his driveway in his truck when the gunman drove up.

The gunman then got out of the vehicle and shot multiple rounds at the driver of the white truck, hitting him several times, police said.

When officers arrived, they said they found the victim with gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of a white truck. A passenger was uninjured.

EMS rushed the man to the Brooke Army Medical Center in critical condition.

Neighbors identified the victim as Roberto Lopez. They say he would come back and forth from the construction job he had.

“I am praying for him to live because it is ugly, especially if you come home and work, come home and work. There is no point in getting hurt like that,” said one neighbor who asked not to be identified.

Police do not have a motive for this shooting at this time. They continue their search for the shooter and their investigation.

KSAT will update this story with new information as it becomes available.
