Police looking at road rage as motive for NW Side shooting

Victim shot in neck, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police say a shooting on the Northwest Side late Monday night may have stemmed from road rage.

The victim in this case was a passenger in a car traveling along Callaghan Road near Winlock Drive around 11:30 p.m.

Police say the victim’s twin brother was driving the car.

He told officers a light blue SUV puled up next to him with a driver who appeared to be experiencing road rage.

The brother told officers that other driver pulled out a gun and fired at his car several times, hitting the victim in the back of his neck.

He then drove the victim to a gas station near Callaghan Road and Bandera Road and called for help.

Police say the man who was shot was in critical condition as he left for a hospital in an ambulance.

They did not find the shooter.
