A confrontation between neighbors on the south side of San Antonio turned violent early Monday morning, leaving two individuals injured from gunshot wounds. According to local authorities, the incident occurred after a dispute about a gathering at a residence in the 1400 block of Caballero Drive, near South Zarzamora Street. Both a 19-year-old man and a woman in her 30s were shot by their neighbor during the altercation.
San Antonio Police swiftly responded to the scene following reports of a disturbance between the neighbors at approximately 12:54 a.m. Upon arrival, officers discovered that the 19-year-old man and the woman had sustained gunshot wounds as a result of the altercation. The victims were immediately transported to University Hospital for medical treatment. The teenager’s condition was reported as critical, while the woman was deemed stable.
Law enforcement officials are currently investigating claims made by the neighbor, a man in his 40s, who allegedly fired his weapon in self-defense. It appears that the neighbor took issue with the gathering taking place at the adjacent residence. As tensions escalated, a physical fight ensued, prompting the neighbor to retrieve a firearm and discharge multiple rounds. The neighbor later informed the police that he felt threatened during the altercation.
The neighbor has been apprehended by the authorities for further questioning. Additional details regarding the incident are expected to emerge as the investigation progresses. Updates will be provided as new information becomes available.
