SAN ANTONIO – District 4 City Councilman Rey Saldana on Wednesday made a plea to the community to come forward with information into the shooting death of a 3-year-old boy.
Rene Blancas Jr. was shot and killed while he was riding in his parent's car Saturday near New Laredo Highway and Briggs, police said.
Police are looking for a gold or beige four-door 2000 Honda Civic in connection with the case.
Saldana said anyone with information needs to call police.
"I want to live, like the rest of San Antonians, in a place where nobody gets away with the type of action that the perpetrator, in this case, is getting away with," he said. "So we want a call to action for anyone who has information or tips, and not let any attention get away from something as important as a murderer who is still out in our community."
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 210-224-7867.
Rene would have turned 4 years old Wednesday.
Instead of a birthday party, his parents will attend a vigil in their child's honor.
