A 63-year-old East side man was shot and killed by someone who fired into his home early Friday morning.

San Antonio police say the victim was standing in his bedroom when he was shot around 1:30 a.m.

Police say that person then got out of the car, walked up to the side of the home and fired shots into it.

The victim was hit in his back and died before officers arrived.

The shooter sped away in the car and has not yet been found.

Investigators spent hours processing the home and the area around it.

They found some of the shell casings in the street near the home.

Officers at the scene initially said the victim was 64-years-old. However, a written report later corrected that, saying he was 63.
