SAN ANTONIO – A 41-year-old man was taken into custody after destroying property and shooting at a vehicle in the Medical Center area, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called out to a shooting in the 2800 block of Babcock Road around 4 p.m. Wednesday. Police said it was never an active shooter situation.

An off-duty officer from a different agency was in the area and observed the man destroying property and shooting at the ground and a truck, police said.

The man then got into a red Corvette, and police worked to lure him out safely, officials say. An SAPD spokesperson said the man asked for water from the officers at the scene.

The officers eventually got the man to come out and gave him water before he was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.

It’s unclear what led to the behavior, officials said.

Police say the man is facing criminal mischief and deadly conduct charges.
