Drive-by shooting

Which is more worrisome?

Was the shooter someone he knew who did this or that it was a random shooting by some at-large nut job?

Could it have been road rage?

Man injured in drive-by shooting on FM 306

A man driving toward the Canyon Lake area Tuesday night was shot once in the neck by someone in a passing vehicle. He was left behind as the shooter fled, said Darren Brinkkoeter, New Braunfels Fire Department battalion chief.

Emergency workers airlifted the 63-year-old man to University Hospital in San Antonio for treatment of a single gunshot wound, which at the time was not considered life-threatening, Brinkkoeter said.

Police detectives were looking for suspects Tuesday night, said New Braunfels Police Patrol Sgt. Tim Brinkkoeter.

Police hd not released the victim’s name by press time.

The police and fire departments received a call Tuesday at about 6:38 p.m. Responders found the man, the only person injured, in his two-door car on Farm-to-Market 306.

Police cleared the scene close to 10 p.m. near Oak Knot Drive.

“The shooting is still under investigation,” Tim Brinkkoeter said.
