SAN ANTONIO – One person is dead following a shooting inside an apartment on the city’s West Side late Thursday night, San Antonio police said.

The victim was taken by EMS to University Hospital, but died before arriving. The victim’s name and age have not been released.

SAPD did not give a description of the four suspects or a possible motive for the shooting.
