SAN ANTONIO – A man accused of fatally shooting a taxicab driver in Windcrest two years ago was arrested Friday on the West Side of San Antonio, and an arrest affidavit implicates at least one other suspect in the crime.

Baldemar Hinojoza Jr., 44, was taken into custody Friday and charged with capital murder in the death of Aadam Ugaas Xirsi. Windcrest police said Hinojoza had been on the run since January 2019.

Authorities were initially called to the parking lot of a Texas Thrift Store off of Interstate 35, near Loop 410, on Jan. 17, 2019, for a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found Xirsi in the driver’s seat of his yellow cab minivan, with the door open. According to an affidavit, police said Xirsi had a gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
