After a fatal firefight and a stalemate at a West Side trailer park, one man was captured;  the victim has been identified

Daniel lives a few feet away from the scene of the shooting. He confirmed to KSAT that the victim and suspect lived across the street from each other. Daniel, who did not want to provide a last name, said he drove past Negron and Read about 15 minutes prior to hearing a loud noise. “I thought it was fireworks,” Daniel said. “Three shots (is what I heard), and I was like, kids must be doing fireworks.” Closer to Negron’s mobile home was another neighbor, George. “I was inside my trailer, just taking a shower, but I heard them talking,” said George, who also did not provide a last name. He said at that point, the conversation between Negron and Read seemed amicable.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – On Tuesday afternoon, San Antonio police caught a guy who they said fatally shot someone and then barricaded himself inside an RV on the West Side. According to authorities, Carlos Roberto Negron, 39, was apprehended following a standoff that lasted several hours. According to court records, he was accused with the murder of James Franklin Read, 57. The amount of his bond is set at $250,000. According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Negron shot Read just before 3 p.m. at the Lackland Mobile Home and RV Park in the 7600 block of West U.S. Highway 90 after an altercation.

“And then 10 minutes later, I heard two shots. I (looked) outside and there’s a truck, you know. (Read’s) body is halfway pulled out (on the ground), and one of our neighbors was trying to resuscitate him back to life.” Negron retreated to his trailer after the shooting, where he barricaded himself, police said. Responding officers found the Read with gunshot wounds near a white truck and performed lifesaving measures on him. Emergency medical services arrived and transported him to University Hospital in critical condition, but he was later pronounced dead.

The affidavit states that residents identified the suspect and his trailer where he retreated. Police said they contained the area during the standoff and began evacuating residents upon arrival. Some residents chose to shelter in place. “They were just on the loudspeaker trying to get him to talk on the phone, trying to get them to come out, you know,” Daniel said. Hostage negotiators, a mental health unit and SWAT officers were at the scene and made communication with the suspect. While SAPD said he walked out willingly, video recorded by witnesses show SWAT used a battering ram to make entry into Negron’s home. “They used the battering ram to pull the door off, and that’s when they got him,” Daniel said.

Records show Negron was taken into custody at 9 p.m. Although police said it is unclear what lead to the argument, neighbors say the two exchanged words often. “Both of them had high tempers,” Daniel said. “(Read was) a real, decent guy,” George said. “(He was) helpful, but he had a very short temper.”
