A mother of three was shot in Texas on Wednesday after complaining to a neighbor about loud music.
According to KENS 5, San Antonio officers said they were called to The Arcadian Apartments around 2 a.m. to respond to reports of a shooting.
Officers arriving at the apartments found a woman with a gunshot wound to the chest.
The 31-year-old woman had gone upstairs to complain about a neighbor's loud music, police said. An argument reportedly spilled out into the parking lot, where the shooting occurred.
The woman underwent surgery at Brooke Army Medical Center. She was said to be in critical condition.
Police said the suspected shooter fled the scene in a small car. He has not been found.

James Comer (R-KY) moved to hold FBI Director Christopher A. Wray in contempt of Congress Wednesday for not fully complying with a subpoena to produce a document that he says contains allegations from a confidential informant about President Joe Biden and his family, The Washington Post reported.
“To date, the FBI has refused to comply with our lawfully issued subpoena and even refused to admit the record’s existence up until a week ago,” Comer said in a statement Wednesday as he released the contempt resolution. “The FBI created this record based on information from a credible informant who has worked with the FBI for over a decade and paid six figures.”
According to Comer, who is the House Oversight Committee Chairman, the informant has firsthand information regarding a foreign national who claimed to have bribed Biden while he was vice president.
Comer said the committee will vote on the resolution this Thursday.

A Baltimore firefighter is suing his department, alleging an extensive campaign of racially-motivated harassment and retaliation, reported WBAL on Wednesday.
"Lt. Mitchell Waters, an emergency medical technician and firefighter, has been with the Baltimore City Fire Department for 12 years," reported Barry Simms. "His federal lawsuit claims race and color discrimination, a hostile work environment, retaliation and civil rights and Maryland Fair Employment Practices violations," WBAL reported.
"'I'm just tired of it. I want change. I want the fire department to change,' Waters said. 'I've been fighting offenses (that), clearly, I didn't violate, and it's bad. It's real bad for us right now.'"
According to the lawsuit, the problems began during a dispute with a white woman who works for the Baltimore County Fire Department, during a mutual aid call in 2021, which resulted in the woman's husband, a city fire department worker, filing a complaint against Waters.
"Since then, the lawsuit alleges: 'Plaintiff has consistently been subjected to baseless investigations, fictitious charges and unwarranted disciplinary actions,'" said the report. "Complaints include arriving at work late after leaving one engine and reporting for duty at another fire station as assigned. His attorneys, Dionna Marie Lewis and Brett Harshbarger, said Waters pushed back, and the complaints have been determined unfounded."
This comes amid a series of reports on a culture of racism at fire departments around the country.
In February 2022, a hot mic caught volunteer firefighters in Delaware County, Pennsylvania mocking and slurring an 8-year-old Black girl who was fatally shot by police. That entire unit was subsequently dissolved later that year.
