Kidnapping, shooting fueled by revenge, police say

Police said Eddie Rodriguez kidnapped, beat and shot a woman in a revenge plot against her brother.

SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police said a woman was kidnapped, beaten and shot as part of a revenge plot against her brother.

Police said 25-year-old Eddie Rodriguez approached the woman at Corona Bar on September 30. She left the bar and Rodriguez started texting her. Police said she thought he was her brother’s friend.

She met him in a parking lot and he reportedly asked her to get his phone out of his pickup truck.

Rodriguez allegedly pulled a gun, forced the woman into his truck and tried to rape her. She tried to get out of the truck, and Rodriguez reportedly shot her in the chest.

Police said Rodriguez was getting revenge on the victim’s brother because the brother “stole a woman” from him.

Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated kidnapping.
