SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are trying to figure out what caused angry words to turn into deadly violence at a West Side house party early Saturday.

They responded to a call about a shooting around midnight and found a 41-year-old man with several gunshots in his upper body. The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office later identified him as Mauricio Puente.

Both Puente and the suspect, a 23-year-old man, were outside a home in the 7100 block of Shady Grove Drive, police said.

SAPD said the two men got into an argument at a party when the suspect grabbed a handgun and shot the victim multiple times.

They took the suspect into custody and questioned him. Police said a firearm was recovered.

It was not clear right away whether he would face criminal charges.
