Bullets fly in West Side parking lot, hitting man, cars

Victim not cooperating with investigators, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are trying to solve a shooting at a West Side apartment complex but they say they’re not getting much help from the victim at all.

They say the man who was shot has refused to cooperate with investigators.

Officers found him at the Marbach Park Apartments, in the 1800 block of Horal Drive, around 2 a.m. Wednesday after getting several calls from neighbors.

They say he had suffered a gunshot wound to his stomach.

Although officers at the scene said the victim went to his apartment for help, relatives told KSAT 12 News that he collapsed on the ground where he was shot.

A man who identified himself as the victim’s brother said, as of early Wednesday morning, the 31-year-old man was still in surgery.

Neither he nor police were able to offer any definite motive for the shooting.

Officers found about a dozen shell casings in the parking lot.

While the victim was hit only one time, several of the bullets hit his SUV and two other parked cars.

Neighbors told police they saw a silver Cadillac leaving the area around the time of the shooting.
