SAN ANTONIO - An update on a Northeast side shooting that left a man in critical condition.

The neighborhood where it happened now hopes to stop another shooting like it from happening again.

Last we heard, the man who was shot in the head is in the hospital listed under critical condition.

"Never seen anything like this, it's a quiet peaceful neighborhood," Citizen on Patrol liaison Timothy Thatcher said.

Last night, police said a gunman open fired on a car full of teens.

A 19-year-old was shot in the head.

"I think every parent has fear for the safety and well-being for their children," Thatcher said.

Which is why Thatcher, with Citizens on Patrol of Walzem Farms is calling for the neighborhood to come together.

"You have to be aware of your surroundings you just have to be," Thatcher said.

The shooting is a wake-up call for Thatcher.

"Before you know it, things like what happened last night will continue to happen," Thatcher said.

He's calling for more cameras to keep an eye on his community.

But most of all, help, to prevent more crimes.

"We can do this," Thatcher said.
