SAN ANTONIO – A man who forced his way inside a couple’s motel room and refused to leave was shot and killed on the city’s East Side, according to San Antonio police.
The incident happened just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday at a motel in the 4000 block of I-10 East, near Houston Street.

The intruder was shot in the head. He later died from his injuries at the scene, SAPD said. No other injuries were reported.
It’s unknown if the shooter will face any criminal charges.
