Police say a man was shot several times after he reportedly banged on doors at a Northeast Side apartment complex on Monday morning.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex on on Gawain Drive, near Walzem Road, at about 3:30 a.m.

Investigators say a 24-year-old man went to the complex searching for his girlfriend and began banging on doors. At some point, the grandfather of the woman said he heard gunshots, so he pulled out a gun and fired several shots, hitting the 24-year-old man three times.

Police say they found bullet holes in surrounding buildings and cars that supported the grandfather's story.

The injured man drove away and stopped at another apartment complex on Bentley Drive. Paramedics picked him up at that location and took him to San Antonio Military Medical Center in critical condition. Police are considering him a suspect in the case.

The incident remained under investigation.
