One man dead after argument, standoff at southwest-side trailer park, SAPD says

The victim, who was in his 50s, was pronounced dead at a local hospital around 3:45 p.m., investigators said Wednesday.

SAN ANTONIO — A man in his late 50s died after being shot at a southwest-side mobile home park Tuesday afternoon, prompting an hours-long standoff between law enforcement and the suspect. The suspect, Carlos Roberto Negron, 39, was arrested at the scene.

The situation began with a call for a shooting around 3 p.m. at the Lackland Mobile Home and RV Park, located at 7650 U.S. Highway 90 West and continued as late as 11 p.m. The victim, who was found in a white truck by officers, was pronounced dead at a local hospital around 3:45 p.m., investigators said Wednesday.

The standoff eventually ended with the suspect speaking to a 911 call taker, according to an affidavit. Police said he later identified himself to negotiators and again admitted to shooting the male who he said threatened him.

The affidavit also said Negron shot the victim while they were arguing. He was arrested and faces murder charges.

Police initially responded to a shooting and when they arrived on scene found a man lying on the ground with a gunshot wound, said Deputy Chief Karen Falks.

According to witnesses, after the shooting occurred another person who lived at the mobile home park ran and barricaded himself inside his home. 

Officers evacuated everyone residing at the mobile home park, but some residents decided to shelter in place, Falks said.

Hostage negotiators, SWAT and mental health units also arrived at the scene.
