Police say a man dressed as the iconic horror movie villain Freddy Krueger opened fire on a crowd of people at a Halloween party in San Antonio.
The incident reportedly occurred just after 5 am on Sunday night.
An unnamed host of the party says there assailants, both of whom he did not recognize,
He adds that they became involved in an altercation with a group of his friends, and things quickly escalated.
The two men withdrew weapons and fired on a crowd, wounding at least five.
Fortunately, no one was fatally wounded.
The host says that the early stages of the fight were recorded on the phones of several partiers.
Much of that footage was uploaded to social media, which allowed police to identify that there were two shooters incolved, instead of one, as had previously been reported.
One witness, a woman named Jasmine Hoyos, says there were more than 100 people at the party, and it’s a wonder that more weren’t struck by the spray of bullets.
Hoyos adds that she assisted a man who was shot in the arm as he waited for ambulances to arrive.
One injured woman who tried to drive herself to the hospitl crashed her car along the way.
“I kind of applied pressure to the wound to make sure he didn’t bleed out,” Hoyos tells reporters.
“A couple of his friends were there with us. So, we were trying to keep him calm,”
At this point, no arrests have been made, and the shooters remain at large.
Neighbors say they’re upset by the incident and believe it does not provide an accurate reflection of their neighborhood, or the city of San Antonio:
“I’m kind of sad that this happened in this neighborhood because I like living here,” says Jeremy Collins.
“It’s a really good neighborhood. It is what it is, and we’re just going to keep an eye out and try to keep each other’s back.”
Police are asking for anyone who may have information with regard to the shooters’ identity or whereabouts to assist with the investigation.
