SAN ANTONIO -

A 31-year-old man was shot and killed early Wednesday morning on the Northwest Side, San Antonio police said.

The victim's body was discovered around 3 a.m. next to a house in the 2300 block of Marilyn Kay Street near Callaghan and Ingram roads.

The victim was transported to University Hospital with a gunshot wound to the side of his body, but was pronounced dead a short time later, police said.

SAPD investigators said details on the shooting were vague, but they questioned witnesses who claimed to know the shooter and not the victim.

Police said the shooter fled on foot.

SAPD investigators said they found handcuffs and bullets in the driveway of the home next door.

Police said a Bexar County Sheriff's deputy lives at the home next door and the deputy was being questioned as a witness to the shooting as well.

Several neighbors report frequent calls to two houses on the street. Police records confirm nearly 20 calls to the two homes since 2012, including another shooting at each house.

"It's scary, because you never know the retaliation or whatever's really going on in there, so it is scary," said Tammy Chapa, who lives on Marilyn Kay.

In August 2012, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office investigated a shooting at the birthday party of an off-duty deputy.

The report stated the deputy was shot in the hand at his house on Marilyn Kay, but the shooting was ruled accidental.

Some neighbors said they were surprised someone working for the sheriff's office would be around so many disturbances.

"Just because of the incidents that have happened in the past, it's kind of surprising that they still are," said Chapa. "They're just all hanging around outside, going in and out of cars."
