San Antonio police are investigating a shooting on the East Side after an elderly woman was hit by a stray bullet Sunday evening.

Police said two men were exchanging gunfire from opposite sides of the street near North New Braunfels Avenue and Hays Street as a woman and her husband were attempting to turn onto North New Braunfels. A stray bullet struck the 82-year-old woman in the abdomen. Her husband was not hit, however.

The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in stable condition.

Police said a bullet also hit a window at the Hayes Food Mart, which has a history of shootings. Authorities are investigating the gunplay and released details about the two suspects who fled the scene. One man was wearing a white t-shirt, while the other was wearing a black hoodie.
