SAN ANTONIO - A Texas Halloween party became a nightmare Saturday when a man dressed as Freddy Krueger opened fire injuring five people.

Police said several men showed up uninvited to the party around 5 a.m. and started causing trouble, according to KHOU.

The homeowner asked them to leave and one of the men pulled out a shotgun from beneath his costume and opened fire, injuring four men and a woman, according to WOAI.

The male victims were taken to two different hospitals. An injured woman tried to drive herself to a hospital but wrecked her car.

Police are still searching for the shooter and his companions.
