SAN ANTONIO – A man suspected of barging into a West Side home late Wednesday night is being treated for gunshot wounds.

San Antonio police say he was critically wounded during a gun battle inside that home.

Officers at the scene said they were called to the 200 block of N. San Ignacio Avenue around 11 p.m.

They say they learned that there were four people inside the home when two others barged their way inside by kicking in the door.

Police say the intruders engaged in a gun battle with someone inside the home.

At some point afterward, a man showed up at a downtown hospital, suffering from gunshot wounds, police say.

Officers said it appeared he was one of the home invasion suspects.

They are still looking for the second person who was involved.

Police say the case is still under investigation and it’s still unclear why that particular home was targeted.
