SAN ANTONIO — A suspect and his companion were at large Tuesday night after a man who police said seemed determined to start a fight boarded a VIA bus near downtown in the afternoon and shot and killed a passenger.
Sgt. Javier Salazar, a police spokesman, said the victim was riding the 90 bus in the 1200 block of North Main Street between Cypress and Poplar streets a little before 2:30 p.m. when an unidentified man boarded the bus. The suspect was attempting to start confrontations with other passengers and began making eye contact with people, Salazar said.
Police said none of the 10 passengers on board at the time engaged the man, but at some point,the suspect approached a man and asked, "What are you looking at," Salazar said.
