SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man killed in a nightclub parking lot shooting that took place Wednesday Sept. 30.

Ganiyu Odunsi, 26, was shot and killed attempting to leave a nightclub after a confrontation took place inside.

The shooting occurred at The Falls bar and nightclub, in the 200 block of Bitters Road near Highway 281 on the city's North Side.

San Antonio police said three friends, including Odunsi, were confronted by two men who said they were offended when the friends apparently looked in their direction.

Police said the friends left the bar but were followed outside.

"The victim and his two friends were outside in the parking lot when he was approached by the same two individuals in a vehicle," San Antonio police Officer Doug Greene said.

One of the men in the vehicle fired, hitting the victim in the chest. The two men fled in a silver SUV.

"We do have some info and we're following a few leads. It is still an active investigation, but a lot of times it is help from the public that points us in the right direction," Greene said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Antonio police at 210-207-7635.
