Online Dating Service Meeting Ends in Shooting

A date didn’t turn out the way a San Antonio man hoped. He ended up in the hospital after being shot at a motel near the airport.

Paolo Kanakoqui told police he went to the Travelodge Inn and Suites on NE Loop 410 to get together with someone he met through an online dating service, but the guy showed up with another man. Kanokoqui says they tried to rob him and shot him in the leg just before 2 this morning.

The television had been ripped off the wall and was found lying on the floor of the motel room.

The suspects fled in a pickup truck and Kanokoqui was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.
