Man shot and killed outside southwest-side bar

Police have two men in custody, one of which they believe to be the shooter.

SAN ANTONIO —  A man is dead after a shooting outside of a bar southwest of downtown late Sunday evening.

Police were called to the scene on Frio City Road just before midnight.

Officials say they have two people in custody at the moment and think one of them may be the shooter, but they’re not 100% sure.

The sergeant says when they got to the Morales Ice House, they found a man had been shot multiple times.

EMS tried to save the man’s life, but he died at the scene.

We’re told he’s in his late 40s or early 50s.

Police tell us right now, they’re not entirely sure what may have led up to the shooting, but say the incident happened outside in the parking lot, and spilled inside once the man was shot.

The bar also closed after the shooting happened.

No other injuries were reported.

This is not the first shooting to happen there, either.

About a month ago, police told us two men had been shot after a fight at the bar.

Both of them survived.

We will be reaching out to TABC later this morning to see if they will be opening an investigation at the bar.

This is a developing story.
