TX: Attack Suspect Claims Victim Status, Police Investigate

According to the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD), upon arrival, they were directed to a 55-year-old man who was initially believed to be the victim. He reported that he was approached by a 26-year-old man and another individual, who fired multiple gunshots at him. The 55-year-old man sustained no apparent injuries.

Officers say they located evidence of a crime scene at the location, including spent shell casings. The 26-year-old man and the other individual were arrested a short distance away after being identified by the 55-year-old man.

According to police during the investigation, new evidence came in. It was determined that the 55-year-old man had actually attacked the 26-year-old and another person with a crowbar before the shooting occurred. As a result, the shooting is believed to have been self-defense.

This conclusion was reached after the 55-year-old was initially released under the belief that he was the victim. The firearm used in the incident has been collected as evidence, and both men have been released.

The SAPD is continuing its investigation into this developing case.
