SAN ANTONIO – A man was fatally shot after San Antonio police said he pushed his way inside another man’s apartment near downtown.

The incident happened around 3 p.m. Saturday in the 300 block of Tulipan Walk Street.

When officers arrived, they found a man in his 30s deceased inside the apartment after being shot once. His name hasn’t been released.

Police said the shooter and a witness of the incident were in the apartment when a man who has been threatening them for several days arrived at their front door. The man was knocking and eventually pushed his way inside, according to SAPD.
