7 Year Old Boy Injured in Eastside Drive By Shooting

By Pilar Arias and Bill O’Neil

San Antonio Police are sifting through lots of questions after a drive by shooting on the Eastside Monday Morning.

“When officers arrived, they did notice several houses and cars were hit by gunfire… there were several shell casings in the street” SAPD’s Officer Douglas Greene told KTSA News, describing the scene outside of a home on Charcliff just before 7 AM.

A short time later, Greene said a woman ran from a home–and told officers her seven year old son had been shot.

“We had EMS come out there… it appears the little boy was in his bed when he was shot twice in the arm. It appears he was grazed… it’s non-life threatening injuries. The little boy was transported to University Hospital” Greene said.

“There was also a neighbor whose mattress was struck by gunfire, and parts of their house was also struck–but they were not injured” Greene added.

Police are now working on figuring out who fired those shots–and who was being shot at.
