Man killed at party on far West Side, police searching for suspect

People at the scene told police they didn’t see what happened

SAN ANTONIO – One man is dead and police are searching for a suspect after a house party turned violent early Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the 7400 block of Rimhurst Drive on the far West Side for a report of a shooting around 1 a.m.

The crowd quickly ran from the home but police were able to detain a few witnesses to question them.

However, the people interviewed told police that they didn’t see an argument but did hear a gunshot and saw the victim fall.

They did not know who the victim was, police said.

The suspect fled the scene.

Police believe the suspect is a heavy-set man, but don’t have much other information, according to a preliminary report.

The home is located behind a strip mall near Shaenfield Road, just inside Loop 1604.

This developing story will be updated online and on air as new information is available.
