SAN ANTONIO — One man is dead and another detained after a shooting at an apartment complex in the Medical Center on Monday night, police said.

An SAPD spokesperson said police arrived to apartments in the 7340 block of Oak Manor, where they found a young man who had been shot laying in front of the entrance to a third-floor unit. Two others inside the unit where unharmed; one of them, an unidentified man, was detained for questioning. 

"If it was an accidental shooting or an actual shooting, we don't know at this time," police said at the scene. 

The 27-year-old victim was taken to University Hospital in critical condition, but did not survive. Police said they detained the suspect at the scene without incident, a 24-year-old man. Police now say they are investigating the shooting as a homicide, but haven't said if the detained suspect has been officially charged.

Two weapons, a handgun and a long gun, were recovered at the apartment, but police say they don't yet know which weapon was fired.
