Fatal shooting at Monterrey Drive

Victoria police are investigating a fatal shooting at Monterrey Drive that was reported a little after midnight Wednesday.

Victoria police are investigating a death Wednesday resulting after an exchange of gunfire that appears to be self-defense.

At 12:25 a.m., police were dispatched to the 200 block of Monterrey Drive for a reported shooting, according to a police news release.

Police have determined that Andrew Guzman, a 31-year-old resident on the block, had shot Kyle Kirby, a 42-year-old Victoria man. Kirby succumbed to his wounds at the scene of the shooting.

A preliminary investigation determined an altercation had occurred before officers’ arrival, resulting in an exchange of gunfire.

Police have discussed the shooting with the Victoria County District Attorney’s Office, and no arrests had been made as of Wednesday morning.

Victoria County District Attorney Constance Filley Johnson said she would not comment about the case or what prompted authorities to suspect the death was the result of self-defense.

The case remains under investigation.
