Man found fatally shot in head in middle of West Side street, police say

Officers were called just after 6 a.m. to Henry Street, near North Elmendorf

SAN ANTONIO – A man was found fatally shot in the head in the middle of West Side street early Wednesday morning, San Antonio police said.

Officers received a call just after 6 a.m. about an injured or sick person on Henry Street, not far from North Elmendorf and North Zarzamora Street.

When officers arrived, they found a man in his 40s, dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

Authorities could not say if the man was shot there, if he was brought there after being shot somewhere else.

A neighbor tells KSAT12 that she got home late and did notice a car that seemed out of place, but never saw the body or heard any gunshots.

Detectives are going door to door looking for clues and to see who might have surveillance video.

Police have not identified the victim, or given a motive for the shooting.
