SAN ANTONIO – A 17-year-old boy is being treated for a gunshot wound that San Antonio police say he suffered during a home invasion.

Police found out about it around 11 p.m. Wednesday when they received a call about a shooting.

At the scene, officers say they were told there were four people already inside the home when the two others showed up and forced their way in.

Someone inside the home then engaged in a shootout with the intruders, who were armed with a rifle and handgun, police say.
