SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE 7/15/21: The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victim as 59-year-old Tony Atwood.
San Antonio police are searching for at least two suspects after a man was fatally shot at a North Side apartment complex early Wednesday morning.
Officers were called around 7:20 a.m. to the Bungalow 09 Apartments in the 8400 block of Country Village, not far from Loop 410 and Broadway Street after receiving reports of shots fired.
According to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus, officers found the victim, a man in his 40s or 50s, shot in a breezeway in what he called a “targeted shooting.”
McManus said the victim has not yet been identified and it is unclear if he lived at the apartments.
Residents of the apartment complex said they heard six gunshots on Wednesday morning, and that this is the third night in a row they’ve heard gunfire.
McManus could not say if the gunfire was linked, but did say as many as eight shots were possibly fired Wednesday.
A vehicle was seen by witnesses fleeing the scene with at least two possible suspects inside, police said. Neither a description of the suspects or vehicle was given.
A motive for the shooting is not currently known. The investigation and search for the suspects are ongoing, McManus said.
