A 16-year-old is taken to the hospital after being shot while trying to rob a taco stand, police said. It happened late Thursday night at Monterrey Park off West Commerce Street on the city’s west side.
Investigators believe two people with a gun walked up to the taco stand and demanded money from the owner. That’s when police say the owner pulled out his own gun.
“The owner of the taco stand shot the actor instead of giving up money,” said Captain Chris Andersen with the San Antonio Police Department.
Andersen says, the 16-year old suspect was shot in the upper left side of his chest and collapsed to the ground. The other suspect ran into a nearby apartment complex, where police tell us he was arrested.
The 16-year-old was transported to the hospital and his condition is unknown.
Police tell us the taco stand’s owner is not facing any charges.
