SAN ANTONIO – Jose Baca Olivares, 58, is currently on the run after shooting at his ex-wife and two others Saturday morning, according to police.

The shooting took place in the 300 block of West Dickson Avenue, when police say Olivares noticed his ex-wife loading the trunk of a car and started shooting.

According to police, a friend of the wife, identified by the Bexar County medical examiner as 48-year-old Juan Carlos Tobar Soto, tried to intervene and was killed.

A woman in her late 20s was also shot while running into the home where the car was parked, according to police.

Two children were in the house at the time of the shooting, and police confirmed that the ex-wife was not hit during the shooting.

There is currently a warrant for Olivares' arrest for one murder charge and two counts of aggravated assault, police said.

He was last seen wearing a dark shirt and blue jeans. Authorities believe he may be in a GMC Arcadia.
