Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar speaks reporters in wake of shooting in the 6700 block of Windsor Hollow Drive

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office on Friday continued its search for two suspects in connection with a shooting that left a Northeast Bexar County townhome riddled with bullets and a family of five wounded, including one fatally.

Sheriff Javier Salazar said during a news conference on Friday that investigators believed they found a stolen 2018 Q50 Infinity that the suspects used.

A 4-year-old girl died in the shooting in the 6700 block of Windsor Hill. Her 7 and 8-year-old brothers, and her parents, a 25-year-old and 27-year-old, were critically wounded in the incident around 7:40 p.m. on Wednesday.

The sheriff said all five victims were transported to the San Antonio Military Medical Center.

The townhome's subdivision is located near Loop 410 and Walzem Road.

Video from a home security camera captured images of the men coming from around the corner of the house, walk within 10 to 15 feet in front of it, and then open fire simultaneously.

"They just, for the lack of a better term, just Swiss cheesed the front of that house," Salazar explained. "It's a miracle that we're not dealing with five dead bodies right now."

He added that an organized crime unit is investigating the shooting. He described the shooting as "targeted."

Salazar explained that the weapons believed involved were Draco AK-47 rifles. He said 30 7.62 caliber rounds were fired into the townhome.

In Texas, the killing of a child under the age of 10 is considered a capital murder case, which carries the death penalty.
