Medical examiner identifies body found at NW Side apartment complex

Victim was shot, SAPD says

SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: The medical examiner identified the body found at a Northwest Side apartment earlier this week as 30-year-old Anthony Sanks.


A Northwest Side man who was investigating noises outside his apartment discovered the body of another man.

He called San Antonio police to the Hearthstone Apartments, located in the 8800 block of Cinnamon Creek, just before 2 a.m. Tuesday.

The man told officers he had heard noises outside his home, then looked outside and saw a man down in the parking lot.

Officers determined the man was dead from at least one gunshot wound.

They roped off the area toward the back of the apartment complex for nearly three hours while homicide detectives investigated.

Early on, police did not make any arrests.

They also did not release the name of the victim, although they said he appeared to be in his 30s.
