SAN ANTONIO – Two people were taken to an area hospital following a shooting at an apartment complex on the city’s North Side late Wednesday night, according to San Antonio police.

The shooting happened around 9:40 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Vance Jackson Road, not far from Fredericksburg Road and Interstate 10.

According to a preliminary report from police, a man was arguing with his girlfriend when his neighbor intervened and they got into an altercation.

The man who was arguing with his girlfriend pointed a gun at his neighbor who then walked back into this apartment, police said.

That neighbor told police that he thought someone was trying to kick in his front door so he grabbed his gun and went outside.

Both the man and the woman were taken by ambulance to an area hospital. Their conditions are not currently known.

SAPD said the shooter was taken into custody on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has not been identified.

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