SAN ANTONIO – An 18-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged with one count of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after a shooting on the Northwest Side, according to San Antonio police.

Shortly before noon, officers were called to an apartment complex in the 7100 block of Wurzbach after receiving reports of the shooting.

Officers arrived and found a man, later identified as 28-year-old Valentin Gonzales IV, at the apartment complex suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, according to Officer Nick Soliz. Gonzales was taken to University Hospital in critical condition, where he later died.

Soliz said the suspect, identified as 18-year-old Jordan Eaton, was not apprehended at the scene. Officers were able to gather information where the shooting took place and through surveillance video to identify the suspect, Soliz said.
