SAN ANTONIO – A man was taken to an area hospital after being found shot in the leg early Tuesday morning, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called around 12:45 a.m. to the intersection of North Main Street and Savings Street, not far from North Flores Street after receiving word of a person wounded.

According to police, officers arrived to find the man with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was taken by EMS to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he is expected to be OK.
