SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Police Department arrested a man and woman accused in the shooting death of a man in May.

On May 5, just after 6:45 p.m., the San Antonio Police Department responded to the 2330 block of Austin Highway to reports of a shooting.

Police said 31-year-old Gary Smith parked in the parking lot waiting to pick up his friend when 33-year-old Calvin Williams and 31-year-old Monique Scott pulled up behind his vehicle and asked about the friend Smith was reportedly picking up.

When Smith leaned his head out of the driver side window, SAPD said Williams started shooting at Smith multiple times.

One of the witnesses on the scene said she recognized one of the voices yelling at Smith before the shooting and recognized the suspect vehicle to be associated with Calvin, the affidavit says. 

Upon further investigation, it was revealed the car belonged to one of Williams' girlfriend's, the affidavit said. The victim however was driving a car that belonged to another one of William's girlfriends who was incarcerated.
