SAN ANTONIO — A teenager was shot in the leg in a drive-by shooting at an east-side apartment complex early Thursday morning.

It happened around 1:05 a.m. on the 4000 block of E Southcross in Pecan Valley.

When officers arrived, they found the 14-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to his left thigh.

Police say the young man said he was walking into the apartment complex grounds, near the front gate, when he heard several shots ring out. The teen then said he felt the hit and called police. 

Officers say they don’t have a description of the shooter or possible suspects at this time. 

All the boy said is he heard and felt the shots and saw a car drive away on Southcross. 

Police say the investigation is still active.
