SAN ANTONIO -- An argument between a brother and sister got way out of hand and ended up with one of them in the hospital.

The incident took place in the 100 block of Terry Court, just north of downtown. According to authorities, that's where the woman lived with her elderly disabled father.

The siblings had reportedly been in an argument over the last week.

But, on Tuesday at around 1 p.m. the brother showed up at the home and hostilities were stirred up once again.

San Antonio police say the two were arguing when the woman pulled out a .40 caliber pistol and shot her brother in the chest.

The whole incident took place in front of their father.

The victim, who is in his mid 40s, was taken to SAMMC. His sister was taken into custody.
