Man fatally shot by ex’s father during confrontation identified

Shooting reported in 15900 block of Redwoods Manor

SAN ANTONIO – A 37-year-old man is dead after he was shot multiple times at a home on the Northeast Side during a confrontation with his ex’s father.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the death of Daniel Rudy Veliz Thursday morning.

Police said they received a call around 9 p.m. for a disturbance at a home in the 15900 block of Redwoods Manor, not far from O’Connor Road and Loop 1604.

When officers arrived, they said they at first didn’t find any activity. After they left, Veliz went to the home to confront his ex-girlfriend, officers said.

Police said the woman’s father confronted him with a gun on the porch and told him to leave. The father told police that Veliz refused and he had lunged at him, forcing the father to shoot, according to officers.

Veliz was shot three times, with wounds to his head, leg and torso. He was taken by EMS to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead prior to going into surgery, police said.

Officers said children were in the home and did not see the shooting, but they did hear it.

So far, no charges have been filed. The case is under investigation.
