Man shot, stabbed after showing up unwanted at Southeast Side home, police say

Incident occurred around 9 p.m. in 500 block of Mt. Vernon Court

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police have arrested a man after he allegedly stabbed and shot someone at a Southeast Side home late Sunday night.

James Ward, 50, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was also booked on an unrelated active warrant.

The shooting happened around 9 p.m. at a home in the 500 block of Mt. Vernon Court, not far from South New Braunfels Avenue and East Southcross.

A preliminary police report states a man showed up to the house and an altercation ensued that eventually turned physical. That’s when, police say, Ward stabbed and shot the victim.

Officers arrived and took Ward into custody without incident. It’s unclear if the pair new each other before the incident.

Police said the man shot was taken to a Brooke Army Medical Center in “stable” condition.

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

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, police said.
