SAN ANTONIO – A man is dead following a shooting on the city’s West Side, San Antonio police said.

The shooting happened Wednesday at the Costa Valencia apartments in the 6300 block of West U.S. Highway 90.

Police said multiple witnesses reported seeing a man in his 20s run from a building into the courtyard asking for help. He had a gunshot wound to the chest, officials said.

The man, who has not been identified, collapsed at the bottom of a stairwell and died from his injuries, police said.

He was reportedly in an argument with a male suspect in the parking lot when shots were fired, according to SAPD.

Officers are now searching for the driver of a black car that left the area after the shooting.

Investigators said they found evidence of multiple gunshots that were fired inside one of the apartment buildings. They say they are not sure if the man who was killed was a resident of the complex.
