SAN ANTONIO – A 26-year-old man was taken to an area hospital after being shot during an argument on the city’s North Side early Friday morning.

Officers were called around 4:30 a.m. to a parking lot near Blanco Road and West Mariposa Drive after receiving word of shots fired.

According to police, the victim was one of two people in a car that had stalled out on the road. That’s when, police say, a witness saw the pair get out and start pushing the car into a parking lot.

The wounded man was taken by EMS to University Hospital, for his non-life-threatening injuries. SAPD said the victim is not fully cooperating.

Authorities said the shooter ran off on foot westbound and has not yet been found. The investigation is ongoing.
