SAN ANTONIO – Editor’s note: Police first told us that a security guard shot a man in the chest and he was in critical condition. After receiving a preliminary report from the police, the information changed dramatically.
A man is hospitalized following a drive-by shooting near a North Side nightclub, San Antonio police say.
The incident began around 5 a.m. on Saturday in the parking lot of the Diamonds Showclub, located at 2525 NE Loop 410.
Witnesses told police they were with the 24-year-old, waiting to enter the club, when a brawl broke out and a shooting ensued.
The man and witnesses, three women, hid behind bushes near the gunfire, officials said. He then offered to drive the three women to their car at the nearby apartment complex, police said.
As they drove through the apartment complex, a man and woman were walking down the middle of the driveway when the 24-year-old asked them to move, officials said.
The couple ran to their car, possibly to get a gun, police said. The man then dropped the women off at their car and he and his friend started to leave the complex.
Police said when the man and the three women left the complex in their vehicles and entered Loop 410, another car exited the complex.
The vehicle headed for the man’s car and began shooting at him for at least a block, authorities said.
One of the bullets hit the man and he went to a Valero gas station on Starcrest and 410 and called for help.
The man was taken by EMS to Brooke Army Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, police said. The suspect is still at large.
In the initial incident in Diamonds, police said a security guard shot a red pickup truck that shot in the air and possibly other people.
Officials said it does not appear that anyone was shot dead in the incident.
The case is still ongoing.
