Man fatally shot in apartment doorway

Victim found in apartment doorway on W Military Drive

SAN ANTONIO - A man was gunned down in the doorway of his West Side apartment Tuesday night.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired at 9:45 p.m. at the Avion Place Apartments in the 5400 block of West Military Drive.

Officers said the man, identified Wednesday as Michael Derek Saggese, 28, had been shot in the head, face and neck and was dead upon arrival.

Police said Saggese is a documented member of the Orejon prison gang and the shooting maybe related to a fight that occurred Monday or drug-related. 

Saggese's girlfriend told police she was at the pool at the time of the shooting. She says she saw a man walking away from the apartment, placing something in his pants.

His cousin was inside the apartment at the time and told police he heard gunshots, but didn't see anything.

Both the cousin and the Saggese's girlfriend were questioned but as of noon on Wednesday, no arrests had been made.
