Shooting stemmed from argument, according to police chief

Joseph Harris (KSAT)

SAN ANTONIO – A suspect has been indicted in the murder of a man who was shot near a downtown San Antonio bus stop in late February, according to the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.

Joseph Harris is charged with murder in the death of Isaiah Orozco. The indictment alleges Harris intentionally and knowingly caused Orozco’s death with a firearm.

Shortly before noon on Feb. 28, officers were called to the 200 block of South St. Mary’s Street, where Orozco was shot multiple times in his head and body.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said two men got into an argument. Both pulled out a gun during the argument, but one of the men walked away while the other opened fire on him.

Orozco was in critical condition the day of the shooting. The ME’s office later released his cause of death and identified him as the shooting victim on March 8.

If convicted, Harris could face a punishment of five to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.
