Investigation underway after juvenile shot dead in apartment parking lot, SAPD says

Officials said there were 9-millimeter shell casings located on the scene

SAN ANTONIO – An investigation is underway after a young male was shot to death in a parking lot on Sunday afternoon, according to San Antonio police.

The shooting happened around 1:20 p.m. on Sunday in the 3700 block of Binz Engleman Road.

“This is heartbreaking,” said a woman who lives two buildings away from the crime scene. “This is too close.”

Upon arrival, police said the victim was found dead in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

Police believe the victim was likely a teenager.

“I just felt so sorry for that mom and dad and sisters and brothers and aunties,” said the woman.

People nearby heard the gunshots but did not see the shooting itself, according to investigators. Investigators believe around five gunshots rang out.

Officials said there were 9-millimeter shell casings located on the scene.

The deadly shooting is why a man who lives at the apartment complex worries for his own kids.

“My daughters don’t go about, don’t do nothing,” he said. “Not in this.”

He’s frustrated that a young man will never get to grow up and hopes a solution saves others.

“I think they need to quit letting these kids get ahold of these guns,” he said.
