San Antonio, Texas – Police said a Northwest Side shooting death Sunday night could be justified in self-defense.

26-year-old Boanegres Najera broke into a friend’s home in the 9600 block of Timber Laurel after he was kicked out of a bar for causing a disturbance. Najera allegedly stole a gun from the home.

Later in the evening, the owner of the gun confronted Najera in the 5200 block of Northwest Trails.

The men struggled over the weapon before a third man, the gun owner’s brother, shot the suspect about 10:45 p.m., police said. Najera died at the scene, while the shooter fled.
