Police in San Antonio have revealed that a shooter remains at large after killing a man outside an illegal gambling location on the California city’s southwest side.

gunshot wounds to his head and stomach

The victim, a 30-year old man, was fatally shot on Thursday just before 10.30pm, suffering gunshot wounds to the head and stomach. After performing life-saving procedures, paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. The identity of the deceased has not yet been made known to the public.

The shooting took place outside a house which police have confirmed was being used for illegal gambling purposes. They found several slot machines within the property. Authorities believe that the shooting was the result of a fight, although they do not have a motive for the dispute.

The suspect fled in a white Volkswagen Jetta with two other accomplices. Police have since apprehended the driver but the remaining two suspects remain at large, including the suspected shooter. The investigation is ongoing.

Since gambling is only permitted at very select locations in California, illegal gambling dens are a common issue. In March last year, a similar shooting outside one such den resulted in the death of another 30-year old man.
