Police say victim and suspect possibly know each other

SAN ANTONIO – A 30-year-old man was taken to a hospital after being shot in both of his legs.

It happened just after 10 p.m. in the 100 block of Maple Valley Drive near Ray Ellison on the city’s Southwest Side.

The victim told police he was offering to sell his necklace to someone he knew and they agreed to meet up at a house.

But, when he arrived at the home, the person he was supposed to sell the necklace to pointed a gun at him and demanded the necklace. The person then shot the victim twice, once in each leg, took the necklace and left.

The victim was able to drive himself away to a safe location and was later taken to a hospital by ambulance.

Police returned to the scene of the crime but were unable to find the suspect.
