SAN ANTONIO – A 35-year-old man was wounded during a shooting at a home on the city’s Northeast Side late Wednesday night, San Antonio police said.
Officers were called around 10:20 p.m. to the home in the 4800 block of Castle Stream Street, found not far from Midcrown Drive and Gibbs-Sprawl Road after receiving word of a shooting.
According to police, the man heard banging on his front door and thought the commotion was his girlfriend returning home. That’s when, police say, the man went to open the door and two people began firing gunshots through the door.
SAPD said the man was hit once by the gunfire in the hip. The man jumped out a side window of the house and the suspects fled on foot, police said. The man eventually returned inside and called for help.
The injured man was taken by EMS to Brooke Army Medical Center in stable condition. His name has not been released. SAPD did not give a description of the suspects or their vehicle. They have not yet been found.
Authorities did not say why the home was targeted or what the motive was for the shooting. The investigation is ongoing.
