The minor was apparently inside a vehicle when she was hit by a stray bullet.

SAN ANTONIO – A 6-year-old girl lost her life after being hit by a stray bullet during an altercation between attendees at a car show, the San Antonio Police Department confirmed.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the minor as Saryah Pérez.

The events occurred shortly before 11 pm this Sunday at the intersection of W Commerce Street and SW 24th Street, west of San Antonio.

Police Officer Cory Schuler said a group of drivers gathered in the area to display their vehicles, but a fight broke out among some of the attendees.

At that moment, someone shot at the vehicle in which the minor was in the back seat as it was driving away. The girl was taken to a local hospital but died shortly after, Officer Schuler said.

Investigators searched the area in an attempt to find those involved, but the initial search was unsuccessful and no arrests have been made so far.

Authorities were investigating two separate locations – where the auto event allegedly took place and where the victim’s family members stopped for help.

Police asked anyone with information on potential suspects to call 210-207-7635.
