SAN ANTONIO – Two men were wounded when a gun sale erupted into a shooting on Wednesday afternoon on the South Side.

San Antonio police said a 22-year-old and an 18-year-old were shot around 2:30 p.m. in the 13800 block of Somerset Road, just south of Fischer and Watson roads.

Responding officers found the 22-year-old at the scene, who said he was attempting to sell a firearm to people he met online. He said when he handed one of them a gun, they pulled out guns of their own and started shooting.

The 22-year-old was grazed by a bullet and his cousin, the teenager, was driven to a nearby hospital by relatives. Details about the teen’s injury are unknown, other than he suffered a gunshot wound.

The teenager was not cooperative with authorities, police said.

The identifications of the shooters are unknown and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
