SAN ANTONIO – A 34-year-old man was taken to an area hospital after being shot in the foot on the city’s South Side late Monday night, according to San Antonio police.

The incident occurred around 10:20 p.m. at a home in the 400 block of Linda Lou Drive, not far from South Hackberry Street and East Southcross.
