SAN ANTONIO - The Bexar County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman in connection with the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man in North Bexar County.

Aliza Marie Cantu, 23, was brought into custody late Wednesday night on suspicion of murder.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, Cantu used social media to meet up with the victim, Marc Ramirez, on Monday when she pulled out a handgun and shot him in the face.

The two arranged to meet on MocoSpace, according to Cantu's arrest affidavit.

"The gist of the conversation appeared to be to meet up to drink and possibly have sex," investigators wrote in the affidavit.

Investigators identified Cantu through her MocoSpace account. When they went to her home, they found Ramirez's black Infiniti SUV.

The car was seized by investigators after they obtained a search warrant for it. Inside, they found pooled blood, a bullet casing and two other projectiles, according to the affidavit.

Detectives also discovered that Cantu pawned Ramirez's jewelry, a gold necklace and a pair of earrings, five hours after the homicide investigation began.

Cantu was detained on a municipal warrant. She confessed to the shooting, according to the affidavit, telling investigators that she shot Ramirez while he was seated in the driver's seat of the car.

A delivery driver found Ramirez dead on the side of the road near the intersection of Rustic Oak and Running Springs Drive, not far from Bulverde Road.

Ramirez's death is the 11th investigated by deputies in Bexar County in 2019, matching last year's rate, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.
