SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are investigating after a woman was shot in the chest at a Northeast Side apartment complex early Wednesday morning.

Officers were called around 2 a.m. to the Arcadian Apartments in the 4600 block of East Loop 1604 North, not far from Interstate 10 and Binz-Engleman Road, after receiving word of a person wounded.

According to police, a 31-year-old woman had originally gone upstairs to complain about a noisy neighbor. That’s when, police say, after she knocked on the door an argument ensued between her and a man visiting at the apartment.

The victim was taken by ambulance to Brooke Army Medical Center in critical condition. She was stabilized at the hospital and at last check, her injuries are not considered life-threatening after surgery.

Police said following the shooting, the suspect took off with the person who lived in the apartment. They have not been found.

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

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
