SAN ANTONIO – Two people were killed and a suspect was arrested in a gunfight late Monday night on the city's Southwest Side.

According to a preliminary police report, three people went to an apartment just before midnight in the 3600 block of Nogalitos Street to talk with a man over some speakers.

An argument ensued and gunfire erupted, police said.

When officers arrived, they found Christopher Vidales, 30, performing CPR on 19-year-old Oscar Huerta, who was sitting in the front seat of a red Ford Mustang, the report said. Huerta was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man, 49-year-old Peter Rodarte, was shot several times and was found on the ground nearby. He was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
