An 18-year-old woman was left fighting for her life after being shot multiple times inside her San Antonio apartment. The incident took place on Wednesday night at a housing complex located off Bandera Road and Bloomfield Drive on the city's west side, KENS 5 reported.

According to officials, the young woman, whom police discovered with two bullet wounds, was transported to the hospital in critical condition, and as of now her state remains precarious, and emergency teams rushed to the scene after shots rang out the apartment complex's distinctive echo amidst the night’s dark embrace, KSAT reported. Eyewitnesses claim to have seen at least three individuals fleeing on foot from the victim's dwelling in the aftermath of the shooting, although the SAPD Eagle Helicopter's involvement in the subsequent search ended in vain, yielding no suspects.

The law enforcement's probe into the shooting unveiled no evidence of forced entry, thievery, or narcotics activity within the residence. The San Antonio Police Department's investigatory efforts continue as they endeavour to unravel this violent puzzle and seek out those responsible for such a flagrant disruption of peace within these shared walls where one is presumed safe.

Details on the relationship between the victim and potential assailants have not been laid bare, leaving the community uneasy, grasping at straws trying to comprehend the reason behind the attack and police are impassioned in their call for anyone with knowledge to come forward with information that might illuminate this case and carry us a step closer to closure and justice, "the apartment showed no signs of forced entry, theft, or drug activity," KSAT has conveyed from official statements.
