A man in his 30s was shot multiple times following an argument between neighbors in far West Bexar County late Wednesday night.

Bexar County Sheriff's officials said the shooter -- identified Thursday as Sidney Reed Denbina, 38 -- remains at large.

Officials said Denbina is currently employed as a state corrections officer and is considered armed and dangerous.

Deputies responded to the shooting around 10 p.m. in the 10300 block of Shady Meadows.

The two neighbors began to argue for an unknown reason when one pulled out a gun and fired several shots, hitting the victim several times, deputies said.

"We heard the gunshots go off -- a total of six shots we heard -- and we didn't know what was going on. We thought it was somewhere else," said Troy Leach, who lives on Shady Meadows. "I don't know what they could have been arguing about. The correction officer, he always seemed like he kept to himself."

The victim -- whose name has not been released -- was transported to University hospital, but is expected to survive, officials said.

Deputies initially believed Denbina was inside his home and attempted to make contact with him, but did not receive a response.

Deputies obtained a search warrant to go inside the home before 2 a.m., but were unable to find Denbina.

A warrant has been issued for Denbina's arrest on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Denbina is described as being 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighing about 174 pounds, with blue eyes.

Anyone with any information on Denbina's whereabouts should call the Bexar County Sheriff's office at 210-335-6000.
