SAN ANTONIO – Police are looking for suspects in a January murder that happened in a North Side parking lot, and Crime Stoppers is offering $5,000 for tips that lead to an arrest.

Quintin Smith, 28, was killed on Jan. 9 in the parking lot of the Blow Hookah Lounge at 3333 West Avenue.

Smith was standing in the parking lot at about 3 a.m. when a white vehicle drove down West Avenue and stopped in the middle of the street. Someone inside the car fired several shots at Quinton before the car sped off toward Interstate 10.
