SAN ANTONIO – A 45-year-old man is dead after San Antonio police say he was shot in the chest while inside his vehicle on the West Side.

The shooting happened Thursday night in the 300 block of South San Augustine Avenue.

When they arrived at the scene, police found the man inside a white 2007 Mazda CX-7 with a gunshot wound to the chest.

The man was pronounced dead by EMS, according to officials.

The suspect is still at large, and no witnesses saw the shooting happen, according to police. However, some residents heard the shooting, came outside to investigate and called the police.

One person said they saw a black Dodge sedan-type vehicle reversing in the street after the shooting, and another person said they saw a man walking away from the scene, according to SAPD.

Authorities said it wasn’t a drive-by shooting but could have possibly happened from an ongoing disturbance or dispute.
