    San Antonio Gang Shootout
    Race; Posted on: 2008-04-22 11:07:46 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    Gang members firing machine guns chase car on busy S.A. street

    A carload of gang members armed with machine guns chased after another vehicle on a busy Northeast Side street Monday, shooting wildly at a man in the other car before it eventually stopped and the man was shot several times in the head, authorities said.

    The shooting, which prompted the lockdown of an elementary school and occurred near a high school, left the man seriously wounded. Bexar County sheriff's deputies said the man, whose name was not immediately released, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he remained Monday night in serious condition.

    Sgt. Chris Burchell said deputies arrested at least five men, all of whom are known gang members, in connection with the incident.

    The shooting, which happened about 3:30 p.m. on Candlemeadow Drive near Foster Road, took place as the day was ending at nearby Wagner High School. Dozens of students, neighbors and other curious onlookers spilled onto the street as the deputies struggled to contain four crime scenes within about a four-block radius and separate witnesses from gawkers.

    "It's organized chaos," Burchell said.

    He said the shooting began when the victim, described only as being in his late teens, and the gang members argued. Some witnesses said it involved a car that had been stolen from one of the shooters' girlfriends, but Burchell was unable to confirm that.
