Update: 8 people shot at S.A. bar expected to survive, officials say



According to SAPD, all eight individuals are recovering in the hospital and are expected to survive.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is still ongoing.


A man who was denied entry to a Northside bar because he was intoxicated, shot eight people in the pub’s parking lot late Friday night.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said five females and three males, from ages 23 to 41, were injured outside of REBAR, located in the 8000 block of Broadway.

He said the people drove themselves to local hospitals and were in stable condition.  Two people were grazed and refused treatment. The most serious injury was an individual who was struck in the back.

Police dispatchers received a call at 11:30 for shots fired. Officers that responded to the scene found eight people had been shot. 
The incident began when two males and three females left a bar and walked to REBAR where the doorman wouldn’t allow them to enter because they were intoxicated.

McManus stated one of the two men said, “Don’t you know who I am? I’m a UFC fighter from California,” before walking away. The man returned with a long rifle and opened fire, striking the eight people.

McManus said SAPD officers are searching for the shooter who fled the scene.
