Michael Calderon, 22, died at SAMMC on Monday afternoon

SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man shot and killed outside his home on the city's South Side Monday afternoon.

22-year-old Michael Calderon was shot just after 1 p.m. in the 100 block of West Vestal Place.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said up to three people got out of a Ford Focus and asked for the man by name before starting to beat him up. That's when, McManus said, Calderon pulled out a gun and started firing.
