Man shot to death in S.A. home invasion, suspects get away with cash

Suspect accused of killing man

SAN ANTONIO -- Two men landed in jail after they were accused in connection with another man's death during a west-side home invasion.

The San Antonio Police Department said the suspect, and at least one of his accomplices, knew the victim and reportedly knew he would have cash on him the night of the shooting.

Isaac Rodriguez, 21, was arrested on murder charges. In August, police said he and three others were accused of forcing their way into a home on South San Eduardo Street and robbed several people inside the house.

Police said the men had bandanas over their faces and had handguns. They demanded money, and SAPD said two of the masked men opened fire after the cash was handed over.

Enrique Gutierrez and his son were shot. Gutierrez made it to a neighbor's house to ask for help and collapsed on the porch.

He was rushed to a local hospital where he later died. His son was also shot in the hip, and survivied.

Police said Gutierrez and his son are construction workers. Several of their coworkers would go to their house on Friday to get paid.

The suspects got away with $500 cash.

Police said one of the masked men was 24-year-old Juan Alamendarez, a former construction worker who was recently fired from the construction site where the victims work.

According to court documents, Alamendarez was arrested a few days after the shooting and named Rodriguez as an accomplice.
