San Antonio Police overnight arrested a man in his twenties for allegedly firing a gun wildly as he drove down a street north of downtown, and detectives will see if this suspect is also responsible for similar incidents on the near north and east sides over the past two weeks, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
An officer who was inside the Valero station at San Pedro and I-35 heard several shots and saw the man get into a car and drive toward a nearby Whataburger.
The officer followed, and when the suspect with an automatic weapon jumped out of the car, he and other officers arrested him.
He allegedly fired shots at several cars in the parking lot of a Wing Stop and at an apartment building on Howard St. Nobody was hurt.
The weapon was recovered the bushes at the Whataburger, and detectives will see if the weapon can be matched to two random shootings on the east side last week, and one near the Finesilver Building on at the 10/35 ‘Downtown Y’ earlier this week.
