Robbery victim wounds assailant

A man shot by a robber at a Northeast Side apartment complex wounded the gunman after he dropped his gun during their struggle, police said.

The incident happened about 9:30 a.m. in the 4600 block of Thousand Oaks Drive at The Crest of Thousand Oaks apartments.

Police Chief William McManus said the gunman was wearing a ski mask when he approached the victim, later identified as Terry Hoover.

“They struggled over the weapon,” McManus said at the scene. “The complainant was shot in the thigh.” The victim managed to get the gun, however, and he shot the robber in the torso.

The men were rushed to a hospital in separate ambulances. The suspect, Troy Curtis, 40, is charged with aggravated robbery with bodily injury. He was being held in Bexar County Jail on $50,000 bond.
