SAN ANTONIO – A 47-year-old man is dead and three suspects are on the run following a shooting on the East Side, according to San Antonio police.

The incident happened around 1:32 p.m. Thursday in the 1500 block of Upland Road.

Police said three masked suspects who were armed with long guns were chasing a 36-year-old woman in her vehicle. The suspects were traveling in a separate vehicle when they fired gunshots in her direction.

Although the woman was uninjured, the gunfire struck the man, who was not directly involved in the incident. Authorities said it’s unclear why the suspects were targeting the woman.

The suspects then fled the scene and police are still working to track them down.

EMS attempted lifesaving efforts on the man who was injured by the gunfire; however, he died at the scene.

Further details are limited at this time and the investigation continues.
