ADKINS -- A standoff in the Home Place subdivision between an alleged shooter and law-enforcement officials is over, according to Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr.

“I can tell you the standoff is over; he walked out with his hands up just a couple of minutes ago,” Tackitt said in a telephone conversation.

The standoff occurred after an argument between two men early this morning on a Via bus on Loop 107 in eastern Bexar County ended with one man being shot in the cheek, according to news reports.

The shooter fled, was later spotted in the vicinity of Home Place subdivision, and was cornered there by peace officers from both Bexar and Wilson counties.
