SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A pickup basketball game at a Northeast San Antonio park ended in gunfire Tuesday night with one man killed and two others wounded.
“There was an argument, someone pulled a gun and shot one person in the head,” said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
Several families were at Lady Bird Johnson Park when shots rang out around 7:30 Tuesday night, but McManus says the incident was confined to the basketball court.
“What happened was reckless and it was senseless,” said McManus. “To pull out a gun because of a fight at a pick-up basketball game just doesn’t make any sense.”
Twenty-eight-year-old Ramiro Longoria was pronounced dead at the park on Nacogdoches Road. Twenty-seven-year-old Clarence White was taken to a hospital and a third man was treated on the scene for a graze wound.
The search continues for the gunman described as a think black male in his late teens or early 20s.
