San Antonio police are asking for the public's help in solving the murder of a 16-year-old boy who was shot and killed on Sunday on the city's South Side.
Police say Albert Carrillo III was shot while walking in the 2400 block of Sundrop Bay around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. They say Carillo and two other teenagers were going 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 San Antonio police Sgt. Robert Martinez on Sunday. “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.”
Carrillo was taken to an area hospital where he later died due to his injuries.
Homicide detectives have not identified any suspects in connection with the shooting but said they they believe they were Hispanic males between the ages of 18 and 25 years old.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information which leads to the arrest of the persons responsible for Carrillo's death. As always, you do not have to give your name when you call.
