SAN ANTONIO – An argument between two men at an apartment complex led to gunfire and a man being wounded late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called around 11:30 p.m. to the Chevy Chase Apartments & Townhomes in the 1400 block of NE Loop 410 after receiving word of shots fired.

According to police, a 24-year-old man’s ex-wife had come to his apartment to pick up some of her belongings and brought a 28-year-old male friend along. That’s when, police say, the two men began to argue as the belongings were being gathered.

Police said the ex-husband asked the other guy to leave, but that he returned shortly thereafter with a firearm.

Investigators say the apartment resident, in fear for his safety, pulled out his own gun and shot the 28-year-old man in the shoulder.

Officers said information gathered at the scene determined that the 28-year-old was the aggressor in the incident. He was taken by EMS to Brooke Army Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries and booked on a charge of aggravated assault, police said.
