SAN ANTONIO – A 24-year-old man was shot and killed at an East Side apartment complex Monday morning.

According to Jennifer Rodriguez, a San Antonio police spokeswoman, the shooting was reported around 11:40 a.m. at the Antioch Village apartment complex in the 1500 block of Upland Drive.

When police arrived, they found the victim with a life-threatening gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital where he died.

Rodriguez said the victim and another man were talking on the balcony of one of the units when the second man opened fire.

Investigators are trying to locate witnesses to gather information about the shooter.

This was the second fatal shooting in San Antonio on Monday.
