This is like something out of one of those 'Friday the 13th' movies.
Police tell 1200 WOAI News a couple in their 30s was making out under the stars in their SUV parked at the Huebner Creek Greenbelt behind Ingram Park Mall about 4AM.
They said two men approached them and started screaming at them for no reason.. As the man, who was in the driver's seat, attempted to drive away, one of the men pulled a gun and shot him several times.
The couple managed to drive to the CircleK at Wurzbach and Timberhill where EMS was called.. The victim was rushed to University Hospital where he is listed in serious but stable condition.
The police 'Eagle' helicopter was called to search for the assailants, who escaped on foot.
Police are investigating several scenarios, including whether there may have been a history between the man and the suspects, and whether this may have been a vehicle theft attempt.
