Man found shot at San Antonio newspaper’s downtown building

Victim appeared to be homeless, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are investigating a shooting involving a man who was found at the downtown building of the San Antonio Express-News.

They say the victim staggered into a breezeway of the building, located in the 300 block of Avenue E, shortly before 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say the man was suffering from at least one gunshot wound in his neck.

Because of his injuries, he was unable to talk to officers and tell them where the shooting happened.

However, police were convinced the shooting did not have anything to do with the newspaper or its employees.

Crime scene investigators spent about an hour inside the building, collecting evidence including what appeared to be clothing.

They say the man is 62-years-old and possibly homeless.

He was in critical condition when he was rushed to a hospital.
