Drive-by mass shooting leaves two dead and five wounded at family barbecue | The Sun

TWO men have been killed and five others injured after a drive-by shooting at a family barbecue.

A family was having a barbecue in their front yard in San Antonio Texas, late Saturday.  

A vehicle then drove by and “unloaded on them about 20 to 30 rounds,” said San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus.

Police said it was the second deadly shooting at the house in recent months.

McManus said that in May there was "a deadly conduct incident at this house, a drive-by."

In the latest incident, police were called to the scene on Saturday at 10:13 pm with reports of a shooting in progress.

The injured were taken to various local hospitals and their conditions are unknown at this moment in time.

The Sun has approached police for further comment.

“There were six children inside the house that were uninjured,” McManus said. “They weren’t out front.”

The number of suspects and their identities are currently unknown with no description given.

At this time McManus cannot confirm if the shooting was targeted, but he said investigators “have a couple of theories.”

There was another shooting in San Antonio on the same day, reported by KSAT 12 News.

A 24-year-old man was walking in a parking lot when another man in his 20s opened fire and shot him three times.

One of the shots grazed a bystander and both victims were treated by EMS and are likely to surivive.

McManus spoke about the gun violence plaguing America, saying: “It’s happening all over the country, San Antonio is no exception; that doesn’t make it any more palatable but we’re in the same boat as you know… nobody seems to be able to put your finger on why it picked up.”
