SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE: The Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim in the far West Side shooting as 63-year-old Zoltan Varga.
A 63-year-old man was shot and killed by a 31-year-old man in the parking lot of a gas station Wednesday afternoon on the city’s far West Side, San Antonio police said.
According to police, the younger man told officers that he was getting ready to leave a Walmart in the 11300 block of Potranco Road when an older man’s vehicle cut him off.
Police said the younger man, who drove a red vehicle, told investigators that he shot the older man because he pointed a gun at him and fired in self-defense.

The two men didn’t know each other, police said.
The investigation, which is ongoing, will determine whether the younger man will be charged.
