1 killed, 2 wounded in south side shooting

Police search for suspected shooter

SAN ANTONIO - A man was killed and two others were critically wounded after a triple shooting on the South Side late Sunday night, police said.

According to San Antonio police, three men drove to a home in the 800 block of West Harlan Avenue around 11:30 p.m. to look for a TV. One of the men got into an argument with two other people at the house.

According to a police report, witnesses told officers two of the men were trying to leave, saying, "Let's go already."

Those two men did get away, but not before one man pulled out a gun and shot the three men who came for the TV.

A 28-year-old man died at the scene, and the two men who survived took off, the report states.

They were driving toward a hospital when the driver lost consciousness. They crashed into a car at Southcross and Roosevelt, then smashed through a fence at a car lot, hitting two more parked cars.

Responding officers discovered both men had been shot as well.

"Witness information at the scene led officers to believe that the two victims of the car crash were related to the original incident," San Antonio police Sgt. Javier Salazar said.

The two men inside the Chrysler 300 that crashed were both critically injured. Isaac Rene Iorio, 20, was taken by AirLife to University Hospital, and Jacob Sanchez, 18, was taken there by ambulance.

The man who shot them faces charges for murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police are not releasing the name of the 20-year-old suspected shooter, but say they know who they're looking for.
