SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department and Crime Stoppers are looking for information on the person or people involved with the shooting death of a man on a West Side highway.

Damion Jamal Franklin, 29, was found dead on the eastbound access road in the 5800 block of Highway 151 near Callaghan Road on Dec. 20.

Police said paramedics originally thought they were responding to a car accident because Franklin’s phone sent an automatic alert saying he was involved in a crash.

Instead, they found several bullet holes in his back while they were performing CPR.

Officers determined that he was the victim of a murder, not a hit-and-run crash.
