Three men had come to a mobile home park late Thursday evening and confronted three others, police said.

SAN ANTONIO — In a violent conclusion to 2020, a shooting left one person dead and four others injured.

It happened at a mobile home park on San Antonio's east side around 10:40 p.m. Thursday.

San Antonio police said six young men were involved, and five were shot: four were critically wounded, while one man died from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. One man was not injured. Police said the men's ages ranged from 18 to 21.

Authorities identified 18-year-old Larry Alvarez of Elmendorf as the man who was killed.

Police said their early investigation showed three people went to a mobile home on Southcross Ranch near Loop 410 to confront three other people about a missing cell phone.

It wasn't yet known what exactly happened to escalate the situation, but police believe someone showed a gun and then multiple people shot at each other.

Police said the people who showed up at the home left the scene and drove away, ending at a second location where officers found them.

The shooting remains under investigation.
