SAN ANTONIO -

A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed in south San Antonio Sunday afternoon, and now police are searching for three suspects believed to be involved in the shooting.

The teen was rushed to the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the chest. He has been identified as Albert Carrillo.

Police said the victim and two other teenagers were walking to meet some friends near the corner of Sunbend Falls and Sundrop Falls when the shooting occurred.

“A dark Jeep, unknown color, pulled up to them. They exchanged words, and it looks like four shots were fired hitting the victim one time,” said Sgt. Robert Martinez with San Antonio police. “We're not sure who the shooter was. From what we're getting from the witnesses that were with the victim, one was a female.”

A helicopter hovered over the neighborhood in search of the vehicle.

Police questioned the two witnesses at the scene and collected what little evidence they could find.

“No shell casings, we are still looking for the crime scene,” Martinez said.

Meanwhile police officers approximately a mile away from the shooting were busy cleaning up the scene of a car accident connected to the incident.

“We had an officer responding to the scene that was involved in the accident at 35 and Zarzamora,” Martinez said. “He's OK, no injuries there.”

Police said the dark-colored Jeep also has tinted windows. Anyone with information is asked to call San Antonio police.
