Homicide investigators trying to sort out details of 13-year-old’s shooting death

Witnesses to shooting not cooperating, police say

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio homicide detectives are working to sort out the details surrounding the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy at a North Side home.

Police received a call about the shooting after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and found the teen dead inside a home in the 100 block of Agnes Drive.

Officers say they attempted to talk to witnesses to find out more about what happened, but they were being less than helpful.

“They are not cooperating,” said Officer Ricardo Guzman, a public information officer for SAPD. “I know that the 14-year-old does not live at this location. He was visiting a friend.”

Police say they were given several different scenarios of what happened, including that the shooting may have stemmed from a home invasion.

They also were told there were other people involved in the shooting, but no one offered a description of those people, Guzman said.

“We’re not sure if it was a drive-by. We’re not sure if the shooting happened inside,” he said. “The male was located inside the location.”

Guzman said detectives planned to continue their investigation, and that he expected additional details could be released by late Wednesday morning.
