SAN ANTONIO – A woman shot her boyfriend inside of their North Side apartment, sending him to the hospital in serious condition, according to San Antonio police. She claims it was self-defense.

Officers were called around 1:15 p.m. on Friday to an apartment complex in the 1600 block of Jackson Keller Road for a report of a shooting.

When they arrived, a 28-year-old woman told police she shot her boyfriend, 33, inside of their apartment while her children were in another room.

The man was shot in the abdomen and taken to an area hospital in serious condition. No one else was injured.
