SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Police say a family waiting to be seated at a San Antonio steakhouse was targeted by a masked gunman who opened fire outside the restaurant.

Police released a preliminary report Monday that says a child and four adults were struck by gunfire Sunday night while sitting on a bench outside a Texas Roadhouse.

The report says the suspect fired multiple rounds from a handgun before fleeing.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus says the 6-year-old boy was shot in the leg and is expected to survive, but that two of his adult relatives are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect hasn't been identified. Police say he remains at large and that the shooting doesn't appear to be random.

Police say the adult victims range in age from 22 to 50.
