SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office has identified the 24-year-old man shot and killed on the city’s West Side Saturday morning.
Tevin James Cooks was fatally shot just before 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Rivas Street and NW 18th Street.
According to police, Cooks was found shot in the upper torso when police arrived. EMS attempted life-saving techniques, but they were unsuccessful, police said.
Authorities said several calls were made from people nearby about a loud disturbance on the street. Police said Cooks ran from his house to go fight, and that’s when, according to police, Lesundre Tyrese Zacharie, 19, allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot him.
Zacharie fled while Cooks was left in the middle of the street.
Zacharie is charged with first-degree murder. His bond was set at $150,000, according to the Bexar County Magistrate’s Office.
