Security guard shoots, kills man at apartment complex, BCSO says

Argument leads to fatal gunfire at Thirty Oaks Apartments on Culebra Road

SAN ANTONIO – A security guard fatally shot a 40-year-old man he got into an argument with in the swimming pool area of an apartment complex Thursday night in West Bexar County, officials said.

According to Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sgt. Elizabeth Gonzalez, the security guard was making the rounds at Thirty Oaks Apartments in the 11400 block of Culebra Road around 11 p.m. to ensure that no one was in the pool area, which closes at 10 p.m., when he encountered Nickolas Bosch and asked him to leave.

The two got into an argument, and the security guard used pepper spray to defend himself because Bosch was "increasingly aggressive towards him."

Moments later, they got into a fight, and that's when the security guard opened fire on Bosch, Gonzalez said.

Bosch was taken to University Hospital, where he died.

Two witnesses, including a 10-year-old, told sheriff's officials that Bosch "was the aggressor" and that he "attacked the security officer."

The 10-year-old was not injured and will be interviewed by a forensic specialist.

An investigation will determine if the security guard, who works for Statewide Patrol, will be charged.
