KSAT reports: [San Antonio police] officers first spoke with the homeowner around 6:30 a.m. at his home in the 800 block of Jennings Avenue, where they had been called for a shooting and a subsequent car crash one block away.

Police cordoned off areas of the street near the home where the shooting happened and the site where the suspect’s car hit a tree with crime scene tape to conduct dual investigations.

[San Antonio police Chief] McManus arrived about an hour later and told reporters that the homeowner had caught the suspect stealing from him.

“He’s a mechanic for a living,” McManus said. “He was working on a car in front of his house. There was a jack under his car.”

The suspect took the jack and had placed it into his car when the homeowner came out of his house with a gun and confronted him, police said.

“The suspect tried to drive away. The owner was hanging onto the car. The owner, at that point, fired a few rounds,” McManus said.

At least two bullet holes were clearly visible on the back panel of the driver’s side of the car.

McManus said it appeared the suspect also was hit by the gunfire.

As the man drove away, he lost control of his car and slammed into a tree in the 700 block of Jennings.

The car sustained heavy damage to its front end but it’s unclear whether the suspect died as a result of the gunshots or the crash.
