Woman shot and killed in back of SUV after argument at east-side bar

The 28-year-old woman died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

SAN ANTONIO — Police are searching for a suspect who shot and killed a woman who was riding in the back of an SUV after an argument at an east-side bar.

Police responded to the 800 block of Hammond Avenue off S. New Braunfels around 12:17 a.m. Monday for reports of a shooting in progress, saying they had a hard time locating the victim.

The initial calls to first responders indicated the address was a bar, however that was not the case. The 28-year-old victim was found inside a white SUV with a single gunshot wound to the head.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police there was a fight at a sports bar on S. Gevers and the group in the SUV drove off immediately following the altercation.

The suspect followed the SUV and fired off several shots, hitting the 28-year-old, who was sitting in the back seat. 

Police are still trying to sort out additional information on this incident. 

There is no information on the suspects.
