SAN ANTONIO – Shots fired into a home Northwest of downtown early Tuesday morning have left one woman hurting and members of her family shaken.

San Antonio police who were called to the home, located in the 900 block of Waverly Avenue, found a 59-year-old woman with a graze wound on her upper body.

Other people in the home told them she was wounded when someone drove up around 3 a.m. and sprayed the home with gunfire.

Police say two 18-year-olds who were sleeping in a bed with an eight-month-old baby in another room woke up and found bullet holes in their headboard about a foot above their heads.

They say a 17-year-old who also was in the home was not hurt.

Police did not find anyone right away who actually witnessed the shooting, so they had very little information.

The wounded woman was checked out by paramedics at the scene, but did not have to be taken to a hospital.

Officers at the scene said they were investigating the possibility that the shooting may be related to a fatal stabbing which happened earlier this month.

They say they believe someone living in the home somehow is tied to that case.
