The victim was rushed away by ambulance, but died by the time he reached the hospital, they said.

According to officers, the suspect left the scene before they arrived.

A later report said that he later walked up to police during the investigation, told them he was the shooter and turned himself in.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, is expected to be charged with murder.

Police said they are still working to make a positive identification of the man who was killed.

Although the bar was open at the time of the shooting, no one else was injured.

The bar has no visible name on its building other than the words, "Sports Bar." (KSAT 12 News)

Aside from large red letters on the building that say, “Sports Bar,” the business, which is located not far from Interstate 10 and Wurzbach Road, did not appear to have any name displayed.

However, according to Google maps, the name of the bar is Boneheadz Sports Pub.
