SAN ANTONIO – One person was taken to an area hospital after road rage argument turned into a shooting early Thursday morning, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called around 1:15 a.m. to an apartment in the 9800 block of Camino Villa, not far from Braun Road and Loop 1604 after a receiving word of a person wounded.

According to police, a pair of drivers had gotten out of their vehicles at Prue Road and Hausman and were arguing when one of the drivers shot the other in both their legs. That’s when, police say, the victim managed to get back into his car and drive back to his apartment, where he called for help. The suspect fled and has not been found, police said.

The victim, a 38-year-old man, was taken by EMS to University Hospital and is expected to recover.

SAPD could not say exactly why the road rage happened and they also were unable to locate an exact crime scene.

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

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
