SAN ANTONIO – An off-duty officer and his son were shot at while driving home Saturday in what police are saying was a road rage incident.

At 9:13 p.m., SAPD officers responded to a shooting in the main lanes of NW Loop 1604 at New Guilbeau Road.

Police say an off-duty SAPD officer, 48, and his son were driving home when a vehicle began tailgating them.

While passing them, someone in the other vehicle fired several rounds at the off-duty officer before driving off.

The officer, who has served with SAPD for 18 years, was hit in the shooting but did not attempt to return fire, said SAPD.

SAPD said the officer’s 16-year-old son was not injured in the incident and called the police after the shooting.

The officer was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Police said they have very little information on the suspect vehicle but did find shell casings on the highway after they shut down the roadway to conduct their investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation.
