SAPD standoff ends when SWAT officers storm house, find no suspect

Police looking for suspect who shot man Saturday night

SAN ANTONIO – A 14-hour police search for a shooting suspect has ended without anyone in custody.

The San Antonio Police Department says officers surrounded a house in the 1100 block of North Sabinas just after 8 p.m. Saturday looking for the man who shot another man in the neck.

Officers then called for the SWAT team and negotiators.

SAPD says the tactical team surrounded the house and managed to remove several people.

Then this morning, SWAT officers fired tear gas into the house and made entry, but they did not find the shooting suspect.

Police say the shooting victim identified the shooter as 49-year-old Jose Moreno.

He told investigators he and Moreno argued at the house on North Sabinas and Moreno then pulled a gun and fired striking him once in the neck.

The bleeding man ran to another location to get help.

Officers then arrived, and the victim told them who had fired the shots and where that man was.

Police say a warrant has been issued for Moreno on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

SAPD says the investigation into the shooting and standoff continues.
