Police said he opened fire on a dinner party waiting to be seated at a Texas Roadhouse in the 2800 block of Cinema Ridge. Four adults and one child were shot, according to police.

The incident was reported to police as an active-shooter but San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said investigators do not believe the shooting was random.

The police report said that four people — a 39-year-old woman, a 22-year-old man, a 50-year-old woman and a 6-year old boy — were all transported by EMS to University Hospital for medical treatment.

The fifth victim was not initially found at the scene but was later discovered at a hospital after he drove himself there to get help.
