Welcome to San Antonio! Tourist Shot Near His Hotel Overnight

It wasn’t exactly the Welcome Wagon that greeted a visitor to San Antonio from California overnight, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Police say the 21 year old man was staying at a hotel near Sunset Station on East Commerce just east of downtown, when he decided to take a walk to a convenience store next door.

When he approached the store, the man said a man walked up to him and, without comment, started shooting him.  One bullet lodged in the man’s leg.

The victim was able to make it back to his hotel were he asked the desk clerk to call 9-1-1.  He’s hospitalized with non life threatening injuries, and a bullet as a souvenier.
