Two women sustained injuries after a gun was fired during a heated argument which took place around 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 21 inside the now defunct Saint nightclub, according to police and local media reports.
KSAT-TV reported the first woman was grazed on the forehead. The other was was shot in the lower body and had to have surgery. Both were taken to SAMC.
According to the San Antonio Express-News:
Police Officer Michael McCampbell said a suspect pulled a gun and shot a person in the left buttock. The round went through the victim’s body and exited through her abdomen.
McCampbell said the suspect suffered some sort of trauma to the head, though it is unclear whether she was hit with an object or grazed by a bullet.
Police say there were around six people inside the club when the incident occurred. They told police they were there to prepare the premises for a re-opening.
Police continue to investigate. No arrests have been made.
The Saint has been closed since October 2015, however KSAT’s Saturday morning broadcast showed there is a small sign on the door which says “Grand Opening.”
The Saint had been in operation for 23 years. It was first located on the 1400 block of North Main Street and later moved to Lexington Avenue across the street from Club Essence.
The bar has had a long succession of owners over the years.
At the time of its closing in 2015, the Saint was said to be experiencing financial troubles and had unpaid invoices due to one local liquor supplier.
