SAPD identifies woman arrested in connection with deadly shooting of man on Northwest Side

Police say the victim was found by officers out on a nearby sidewalk

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department said a woman was arrested in connection with a shooting that killed a man early Saturday morning.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex in the 8800 block of Timber Path Drive.

When officers arrived at the complex just after 1:45 a.m., they said they found a 30-year-old man with a gunshot wound bleeding on a nearby sidewalk.

The victim was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but he was later pronounced dead, police said.

A 24-year-old woman initially told police that she was outside the complex with the man when an unknown shooter approached them and shot the victim.

Based on evidence reviewed by officers and detectives, authorities believe the woman — identified as Alexis Salazar — appears to have pulled the trigger following an argument between her and the victim.

Officers said they arrested Salazar, who they believe is the victim’s significant other. Authorities charged Salazar with murder.

The department said its investigation is ongoing.
