At around 7 p.m. on Monday, a shooting took place in a San Antonio, Texas LA Fitness. Police said that they believe it was a targeted shooting.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the victim was working out when suspect Jessie Marqui MacWilliams “approached him and shot him in the head” citing KENS 5 News. The victim has currently not been identified.

Witness Quincy Mason told KENS that the shooting felt like it came straight from a movie scene. He gave his perspective saying “When it happened, people were trying to run out…People didn’t know if the gunman was there. They scattered like roaches.”

The gunman fled the gym after the incident and was soon caught by the police while walking down a sidewalk. While the police found what they believe to be the weapon and suspect involved, the intentions or motive behind the shooting is unclear.
