SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: San Antonio police were involved in a standoff with a man at a West Side mobile home park for several hours on Tuesday.

Officers, SWAT team members and crisis negotiators were called to the 7600 block of West US Highway 90 after a man barricaded himself in his mobile home following a shooting. The scene has since cleared.

Officers originally arrived at the scene and discovered a man in his 50s with a gunshot wound on the floor, police said. A tactical medical SAPD officer performed lifesaving measures on the victim before emergency medical services arrived and transported him to a hospital.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting or if the two men know each other. Police have not confirmed if the victim was a resident at the mobile home park.

Police also did not say if the man left the mobile home, or if he chose to remain inside. As of now, it is unclear as to exactly how the standoff ended.

There were no reports of any other injuries.
