SAPD investigating reports of highway shooter near La Cantera

Multiple reports of man firing shots at cars

San Antonio police were asking commuters to avoid the La Cantera area Thursday after receiving multiple calls about a shooter in the area.

Police started receiving calls of a man shooting at cars on the access road at Interstate 10 and La Cantera around 9:30 a.m.

According to Officer Douglas Greene with SAPD, there were no confirmed reports of  shots making contact with any people or vehicles in the incident as of 10 a.m.

Police had certain areas blocked off and were asking people to avoid the La Cantera area in general while they continued to investigate Thursday morning.

According to Northside Independent School District, Monroe May Elementary was placed on modified lockdown.  Modified lockdown limits any entrance or exit from the school by anyone, however, normal school operations continue for the students and staff.

Additionally, Leon Springs Elementary and Bonnie Ellison Elementary took special precautions inside. The school day proceeded as normal but they did not have recess or outdoor activities during the time of the incident.

NISD wants to let parents know this is a precaution and kids are ok.  If anything changes, they will let parents know.
