SAN ANTONIO – Three men were taken into custody following a shooting-turned-standoff in Leon Valley on Tuesday morning.
Leon Valley Police Chief David Gonzalez said the incident started when police officers heard gunshots after 7:30 a.m. in the 7000 block of Weathered Post St., not far from Timberhill and Huebner Road, west of Bandera Road.
Shortly after officers arrived at the home, Gonzalez said three men barricaded themselves inside.
A Bexar County negotiator arrived at the scene, and three men surrendered just after 10 a.m.
They were taken into custody but details about charges were not immediately released. They have not been identified by authorities.
Gonzalez said they are in the process of interviewing the suspects, one of which was intoxicated. They told investigators that they were having a party at the house overnight, Gonzalez said.
An assault rifle and multiple shell casings were found inside the home. Witnesses told investigators they heard anywhere between 8 and 28 gunshots.
Residents told KSAT that they woke up to several gunshots followed by the arrival of multiple police officers.
“I heard somebody unload a clip of gunshots, it sounded like a fully automatic weapon,” RoseMary Pankl said. “There were cops lined up all down the street and they had their rifles out.”
