SAN ANTONIO – Two people are injured, and a suspect is on the run after an apparent road rage shooting on the Northeast Side, according to San Antonio police.

The shooting happened around 8:40 p.m. Wednesday in the 4500 block of Schertz Road near Avenida Prima Street and Pesquera Drive.

Police said a car was traveling southbound and had changed lanes to allow a vehicle to pass. That’s when, police say, the suspect’s vehicle pulled up next to the car and opened fire.

A woman, 21, was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in critical condition, officers said. A 19-year-old man was also taken by EMS to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the lower body, and he is listed as stable.

SAPD said two other people, a 51-year-old man and a 3-year-old child were also in the car at the time of the shooting, but were not hurt.

Police said they do not have a suspect or a description of the car they were driving.
