SAN ANTONIO - A local man was taken to an area hospital after he was shot while he was pulled over on the side of the road, San Antonio police said Monday.

The incident occurred just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday in the 800 block of Fitch Street, which is located not far from Interstate 35 and West Southcross Boulevard on the city's South Side.

According to police, the man and a woman had pulled their vehicle over to the side of the road to assist someone who they say appeared to need help. That's when, police say, someone fired at them with a shotgun from inside the vehicle.

Police said the man attempting to help had a weapon in his possession and returned fire, but it was unclear if anyone was hit by his gunfire.

The wounded man was eventually driven home by the woman to drop off the gun before being taken to a nearby hospital. He was then transported to San Antonio Military Medical Center for his injuries. 

Police said that they found shell casings at the scene. Their investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
