San Antonio police are reporting that a man was injured on Thursday night after he was shot while running from a possible crime scene.
According to the police, several concert attendees were leaving a show after 9:00 in the evening when they found that their car had been broken into near the downtown intersection of Bonham and 4th Street. While they waited for the police to arrive, the family heard gunfire and saw a man with a gun running toward them firing more shots. One of the concert-goers then pulled out his own concealed carry gun and ordered the man who was running towards the group to drop his weapon. When the suspect did not comply, the man fired one shot, hitting the suspect in the arm. Investigators say the concert-goer does have a concealed handgun license and will likely not face any charges since he claimed his family felt threatened.
At that point, the suspect did not comply, and the man fired one shot, hitting the suspect in the arm. Investigators have said that the concert-goer does have the proper concealed handgun licensure and will likely not face any charges since he claimed his family felt threatened.
The suspect, later identified as 56-year-old Robert Garcia, was taken to the San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment.
Police did not provide information about why the suspect was running and firing his weapon, as of the time of this report.
