SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police have a vague description of two men and the car they used to get away from a deadly shooting in 1982.

Tony Waiters (no photo available) was getting out of his car in the 200 block of Vargas Alley when a car drove up, and someone fired a shot at him, then sped off.

Waiters was found by his brother-in-law. He died at R.B. Green Hospital.

Waiters was 27 years old.

Police said Waiters and his brother-in-law had been at a club, McDuff's, just before the shooting.

"They were going to go riding around in the (brother-in-law's new) car, so (Waiters) was going to drop his car off," police said.

The only description of the accused shooters was that they were two black males. They were in a 1979 or 1980 two-door Oldsmobile, that had gold and blue paint.

The murder is still being investigated by SAPD's Cold Case Squad.
