SAN ANTONIO – A man who forced his way inside a couple’s motel room and refused to leave was shot and killed on the city’s East Side, according to San Antonio police.
The incident happened just before 4:30 p.m. Saturday at a motel in the 4000 block of I-10 East, near Houston Street.
Police said the man went inside the couple’s motel room even though he was uninvited. Officers believe the couple may have known the man and was possibly trying to get a protective order against him.
After the man refused to leave, police said the other man in the room had a firearm and felt “compelled to shoot.”
The intruder was shot multiple times and later died from his injuries at the scene, SAPD said. No other injuries were reported.
It’s unknown if the shooter will face any criminal charges.
SAPD’s Homicide Unit is investigating and we’ll bring more details as they become available.
