SAN ANTONIO — A 3-year-old and a 22-year-old man are still in the hospital after they were shot inside a home on the west side of San Antonio on January 19.

The drive-by shooting was reported at around 9:20 p.m. at a home in the 200 block of Moraima, which is near Castroville Road and SW 34th Street.

Officers arrived and found the man and the child with gunshot wounds. Both of them were transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

KENS 5 has not obtained further details about what led up to the shooting. It is unclear if any arrests have been made at this time

The family of the victims created a GoFundMe and detailed the incident, saying the victims, identified as Danny and Oliver, were shot while eating dinner inside the home. 

"This has been an absolute nightmare for us. You never think this will happen to you or a loved one. Such a senseless act to family with no quarrel with anyone, about to enjoy their dinner was meet with bullets tearing through their family home," the post says.

The post says the 3-year-old, Oliver, is still in the hospital for the foreseeable future "unable to walk as a bullet shattered his hipbone. This is a kid with full of life, who enjoys running around the house, going for walks, and drawing. Which just break our hearts that he currently won't be able to do so any time soon, if at all," the post describes.

The GoFundMe also details the other victim, Danny, who reportedly just turned 22 and is still in critical condition as the bullet went through his head, damaging his skull and brain.

"Danny just earned a job promotion, was planning to go back to school, and was looking to spend more time with his son, as Oliver just moved back in with him," the post says.
