San Antonio police: Woman shot at apartment on Gevers and E. Houston; Child and boyfriend present during shooting


SAN ANTONIO – A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed inside her East San Antonio apartment early Thursday morning, and police are looking for any clues to help find her killer.

Shots were fired around 1:20 a.m. at an apartment complex on Gevers and E. Houston.

The victim's 3-year-old daughter and boyfriend were inside the apartment at the time of the shooting, police said.

Family and friends want the shooter to know that whoever took her life, took a caring mother from a child.

"A young daughter, a beautiful, young daughter that she was looking out for, taking care of her, by herself with my cousin. Y'all take a life away from her daughter, that's not right," said Sean Taylor, a cousin of the victim's boyfriend. "Y'all going to do it in front of a girl? A little baby girl, at that?"

The boyfriend told police he was asleep when the victim opened the front door and was gunned down.

Police took the victim's boyfriend in for questioning, but said they have not identified a suspect.

Police have released few other details as they continue to investigate. The victim's name has not been released.
