Gunman Opens Fire in Texas Parking Lot

A chaotic scene recently erupted in a San Antonio movie theater parking lot when a gunman began shooting, hitting and wounding an unidentified male before being shot by an officer, Sheriff’s officials said.

According to a Bexar County sheriff’s spokesman, the incident started around 9:30 p.m. Sunday when the gunman fired several shots inside a restaurant. No one knows exactly yet what prompted the man to open fire.

According to reports, the shooter next moved towards the movie theater and shot a male in the parking lot. The victim’s name was not provided, but his injuries were reported to be non-life threatening.

The same sheriff’s spokesman added that when the gunman entered the theater, he fired a shot, but no one was hit. He was then shot by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy.

The suspect was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and is awaiting charges.

The consequences of a conviction on any weapons-related charges can be severe, so anyone facing a weapons possession charge, or similar charge, should not hesitate to contact the experienced attorneys at the Alexander & Associates by calling (972) 420-6560.
