San Antonio police were busy early Thursday morning, with a pair of calls on the city’s east side.
A 70-year-old security guard at Triple R Auto Parts, in the 2700 block of East Rigsby, called the cops to report he had fired at someone trying to break into his van parked behind the building, while he was sitting it and watching the property. He then fired two shots from his .38 revolver as the suspect ran away. The guard told officers the man ran to the other side of Rigsby, where he lost sight of him. Minutes later, a call for EMS came in, from a man across the street, complaining of arm pain.
EMS found two gunshot wounds to his arm and lower back, and they connected with police at the scene of the shooting.
According to the San Antonio Express News, the 70-year-old security guard has not been identified. The suspect, in his 50’s, was transported to the nearby San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment, and is reported to be in stable condition and under arrest.
