SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are looking for a 29-year-old man who they say took some parting shots as he left an East Side home on Tuesday night.

They say he shot a woman in her stomach after she ordered him to leave the home and also tied a teenager’s arms before locking him inside a storage shed.

Officers who responded to the shooting call around 9:30 p.m. found the woman inside a house in the 100 block of Fuente Alley.

They say her daughter’s boyfriend had been staying with the family, but she wanted him to leave and ordered him out of her home.

A preliminary police report states the man duct taped the 17-year-old’s arms and then locked him in the back storage shed before confronting the mother with a rifle.

Police said the man shot the woman in both her stomach and the hand. The suspect ran out the back door before officers arrived, the report states.

The 46-year-old victim was stable as she left for a hospital by ambulance.

Police searched the area for him, but did not find him right away.
