Man shot in the back while driving on South Side, SAPD says

Shooting happened around midnight in 1130 block of SE Military Drive

SAN ANTONIO – A 31-year-old man was shot in the back while driving on the city’s South Side overnight, San Antonio police said.

Officers were called around midnight to the 1130 block of SE Military Drive, not far from Mission Road after receiving word of a person wounded.

According to police, the man was driving southbound on Roosevelt Avenue when someone in another vehicle pulled up alongside him and started yelling and waving a gun. That’s when, police say, a gunshot was fired and the man’s car was struck in the wheel well before the bullet hit the driver in the lower back.

Police said the driver managed to drive to a nearby Planet Fitness parking lot, where he called for help.

The man was taken by ambulance to Brooke Army Medical Center, where at a last check, he was listed in “stable” condition.

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

So far, no arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
