Officers at the scene in the 3400 block of Roosevelt Avenue said the victim walked in Mustang Sally’s bar and asked for help after he was shot.
He was rushed to a hospital for treatment.
Investigators searched the area for the shooter, but did not find him at that time.
A preliminary police report showed they determined that the victim was shot during a robbery.
A worker who was inside the bar at the time of the attack told KSAT 12 News that the shooting victim was a bar patron.
He said surveillance video, which he turned over to investigators, showed a man in a black hoodie confront the victim as he walked to his car.
The worker said the video shows the man snatch a watch off the victim’s arm before shooting him and running away.
The last word from police was that the shooting victim was in critical condition.
They are still looking for the shooter.
