SAN ANTONIO – An 18-year-old woman was taken to an area hospital after being shot on the city’s Southeast Side late Sunday night, San Antonio police said.

The incident occurred around 10:50 p.m. in the 6900 block of Pickwell Drive, not far from Goliad Road and SE Military Drive and Interstate 37.

According to police, four people (two men and two women) were sitting in a vehicle at Pickwell Park listening to music when they were approached by two men. That’s when, police say, the men displayed their guns and began demanding both their belongings and their cash.

Police said the vehicle tried to drive off, but the men pulled out their guns and fired, hitting the 18-year-old woman once as she sat in the front passenger seat.

The driver took the woman to a nearby restaurant parking lot where they called for help. The woman was taken by EMS to a hospital, where she is expected to recover.

SAPD said the men fled after the shooting. They have not been found.

The San Antonio Police Department, the San Antonio Fire Department and EMS all answered the call.

So far, no arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
