Man wanted for fatally shooting ex-girlfriend two days after kidnapping her, McManus says

McManus: Andrew Munoz ‘very, very dangerous’ and on the run

SAN ANTONIO – A man is accused of fatally shooting an ex-girlfriend as she went to work on Friday, two days after he allegedly kidnapped her.

Andrew Munoz, 42, remains at large after shooting Marisela Cadena, 43, multiple times early Friday at a Subway where she worked in the 11600 block of SE Loop 410, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said at a news conference Monday.

Cadena was found shot behind the counter and was transported to a hospital, where she later died.

McManus said Cadena was a victim of domestic violence, and she reported to police that Munoz kidnapped her and held her against her will just two days prior.

A warrant for the arrest of Munoz for aggravated kidnapping was issued on Wednesday, McManus said.

“She did everything that she possibly could, and that she was supposed to do, to try and get away from him," he said, adding that officers met with her that day and a protective order was facilitated.

On Thursday, an officer was sent to the Subway several times for surveillance for her safety, McManus said.

Munoz found Cadena as she went to work on Friday.

“This is another frustrating example of the problem of domestic violence here in San Antonio," McManus said.

McManus said Munoz is considered “very, very dangerous."

Anyone who sees him should call police immediately and not make contact with him.

“It has been made clear that he does not intend to be taken alive, and he does not intend to be taken into custody," McManus said.

McManus did not detail the suspect’s criminal history.

The Subway location where the shooting occurred is set to reopen Tuesday.
