Victim, shooter left scene after shooting at Merida Apartments

SAN ANTONIO – A man kicked in the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment Monday night on the city’s Northeast Side, only to get shot by the woman’s ex-husband, police said.

When officers arrived at the Merida Apartments in the 2100 block of NE Loop 410, both the shooter and the victim had already left the scene, an officer at the scene said.

The woman told police her ex-husband was visiting with their three children when the other man showed up and forced his way into the unit and started assaulting the woman, the officer said.
