A repo man was shot Wednesday morning while surveying a black Cadillac that was to be repossessed at an apartment complex on the East Side.
Some residents at an apartment complex in the 7100 block of Harlow Drive called police around 9 a.m. to report a man camped out in the parking lot in a white van.
“They’re calling police, saying ‘Hey, we’ve got a suspicious white man here who’s watching the neighborhood and we have kids,'” said San Antonio Police Sgt. Malcolm Guidry.
Shortly after they made the report, a man, who has not been identified, approached the repo man and the two got into an argument. At some point during the fight, he whipped out a gun and fired at the repo man three times, striking him once in the arm.
The repo man got back into his van and fled. Paramedics met him nearby and took him to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment. The wound was superficial and he’s expected to recover.
The shooter has not been located at this time. He was not the owner of the black Cadillac, according to Guidry. Despite the suspicion the repo man apparently raised, the shooter will still face charges once captured, as he allegedly wasn’t defending himself from anything.
