SAN ANTONIO -- The Battle of Flowers Parade is one of Fiesta's most cherished and biggest events but it was also the scene of one San Antonio's most horriffic events.
In April of 1979, Ida Attaberry barricaded himself inside his RV and began randomly firing into the crowd who had gathered for the parade along Broadway Rd. A standoff occurred and by the time the bullets stopped flying - four people, including Attaberry were dead.
Fifty-three other people were injured including 5 police officers and the parade was ultimately cancelled that day.
A KENS 5 crew was yards away while the shots were fired and captured this dramatic report. Watch the video from the KENS 5 video vault.
