The shooting occurred at Boom Boom Sports Bar in San Antonio just before 3:30 a.m., Police Chief William McManus said.

While outside, a man grabbed a long gun from his car and started shooting. At least five people were struck by gunfire, McManus said.
“Lui [il sospetto] started shooting in the air on his way back to the bar,” said McManus. “He encountered many of the people in the parking lot. At the end of that encounter, five people were shot. Two are now dead.”
The suspect is still at large, aggiunse il capo.
