SAN ANTONIO – A 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with a fatal shooting outside a Northeast Side gas station, according to San Antonio police.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Monday in the 4600 block of FM 78, not far from Loop 410 and Binz Engleman Road.

Police said Jekierin Walker was asking for money outside a gas station when he got into an altercation with Stefan Volkman, 41.

Moments later, Walker pulled out a gun and shot Volkman multiple times in the abdomen, police said.

Volkman was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Walker stayed at the scene and admitted to the shooting Volkman, telling officers that the victim voiced some racial slurs at him, officials said.

When asked by the media why he shot the man, Walker said he was called a racial slur and was “attacked,” stating that Volkman approached him with “terroristic threats.”

SAPD said Walker is now facing a murder charge.
