SAN ANTONIO – Three people are dead and two others are in critical condition after an overnight shooting at an East Side sports bar, according to San Antonio police.
The shooting happened around 3:23 a.m., Sunday, after-hours at the Boom Boom Sports Bar in the 1600 block of S. New Braunfels Avenue, near I-10.
Police said a fight started inside of the bar between two people before it spilled into the parking lot.
A man then went to his car, pulled a long gun, and started shooting rounds in the air, striking five people–two women, three men–on the way back to the bar, according to SAPD Chief William McManus.
Two people were pronounced dead at the scene, one died in the hospital and two others are in critical condition at the Brooke Army Medical Center.
The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office has tentatively identified two of the victims who died, but formal autopsies are not expected to take place until Monday.
The suspect is still at large and police are still gathering witnesses and statements. The investigation continues.
This is a developing story and we’ll bring more details as they become available.
