SAPD: Two injured during drive-by shooting from bicycle, car in north S.A.

SAN ANTONIO -- Two men were treated at area hospitals after being struck by gunfire during a drive-by shooting on the north side.

Officers said the men were standing in front of a house when someone on a bicycle, as well as someone in a car, rode by and opened fire on them.

One of the men, an 18-year-old, was shot in the face; the other man, 49, was hit in the ankle, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

Paramedics transported both victims from the 800 block of W. Mariposa Dr. to two separate hospitals in stable condition.

Police said that the guy on the bicycle reportedly had a handgun the guys in the car fired from an assault rifle.

Investigators believe the shooting may have been gang-related; however, police say that there's more to the story than what the victims and witnesses explained.

Witnesses said one of the suspects yelled out 'DATK' as the shots rang out. Officers found those same letters scribbled with spray-paint on a wall just around the corner from the shooting.

The drive-by happened at 1:15 a.m.

So far, authorities have not made any arrests in the case.
