SAN ANTONIO — A man shot at a peeping Tom he said was staring at his daughter through her bedroom window late Wednesday night on the far northwest side of town.

It happened around 10:30 p.m. in the 6800 block of Seco Creek near Loop 1604.

When officers arrived at the location, they met with a father who said he was forced to shoot at a man that was standing outside of his daughters window.
