Suspect robs, shoots handicapped man outside Church's parking lot


SAN ANTONIO - A handicapped man was taken to the hospital Saturday night after he was robbed and shot by a suspect who fled the scene.

Authorities were called to East Basse Road and West Avenue at about 6:30 p.m. for reports of a shooting. Police said the victim was robbed and shot once in the leg in the Church's parking lot, while the suspect fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
