Witness came forward after police released surveillance image

SAN ANTONIO – A man has been arrested after San Antonio police say he fatally shot a man outside a bar on the North Side, moved his body into the alley and then returned to clean up the crime scene.

Felix Sanchez, 48, was arrested Sunday and charged with murder, booking records show. He is accused of killing Jose Ramon Jurado, 45, who was found dead around 7 a.m. June 13 in a grassy area behind a bar in the 4000 block of Vance Jackson Road.

Officers found Jurado with a gunshot wound and he appeared to be moved from the bar’s outdoor patio.

Police: Overnight shooting at North Side home may be drug-related

Hours before his death, the suspect and a woman walked toward the bar’s back door as other patrons left at closing time, surveillance footage showed.

The two sat in the rear patio, out of camera, and Jurado arrived minutes later, the affidavit states.

After several minutes, Jurado and the pair got into a “heated” conversation and Jurado stood up and moved toward them.

The video showed tables and chairs being pushed aside and Jurado stumbling to the floor, police said.
