Three Men Shot in Three Separate Overnight Shootings

It's been a violent hot summer night in San Antonio, with three people shot in three separate shootings in three different parts of the city overnight, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The first shooting happened last night on O'Connor Cove Street on the city's northeast side.  Police say a teenager was standing outside his home talking to some people in a car.

Suddenly, shots rang out as somebody in the car opened fire several times.

The teen was rushed to the hospital with injuries that paramedics said were not life threatening.  The people in the car sped away.

Word of the second shooting made it to police shortly before midnight, when a man was dropped off at SAMMC bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds.

Police were told that the 24 man was shot through the front window of his home on Sunrise Crest, which is off Binz-Engleman in Kirby.

Police arrived at the scene, and discovered as many as fifteen shell casings in front of the home.

The victim had been shot once in each arm and twice in the chest.  He was reported in critical condition.  Police think the shooter was in a passing SUV, but have no suspects.

A neighbor who saw the man bleeding in his front yard took him to the hospital.

Third incident saw homicide detectives called to a vacant home off West Zarzamora and Martin Streets, where witnesses said a group of people had been drinking beer in the back yard.

An argument erupted between two men, and one stood up, pulled a gun, and shot the other in the chest.

The victim was shot twice and was rushed to University Hospital where he was reported to be in very critical condition.The gunman fled.

So far, police have made no arrests in any of these shootings.
