According to police, someone inside a vehicle drove up and fired several gunshots at the house, wounding one person and hitting the home. Six other people inside the house were not hurt.

Investigators say they found gunshot holes on the exterior along with multiple shell casings on the ground. It’s unclear what the motive was. SAPD said they do not have a description of the suspect or the suspect’s vehicle.

The wounded man was taken by ambulance to an area hospital, with what’s believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

One person inside the home was also taken into custody for an unrelated out of county warrant, police said.

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

The investigation is ongoing.
