On Tuesday, June 16th, 2020, the victim Frederick James Nesloney and his wife were driving through San Antonio en route to West Texas. Nesloney was driving a blue 2015 Dodge Ram pickup towing a travel trailer. The Nesloney’s were on the way to the Oil Fields of West Texas for work.
As the Nesloney’s were traveling WB on N. Loop 1604 E. approaching the O’Conner exit, they were about to enter a construction zone that closed traffic flow down to one lane. Just prior to entering the lane closure a pickup truck passed the Nesloney’s on the driver’s side and fired a gunshot into their vehicle. It’s unknown at this time why the victims were targeted.
The bullet struck the driver, Mr. Nesloney and he died instantly. The Nesloney’s vehicle went out of control and struck an off-duty police officer’s vehicle who was working the lane closure. Frederick James Nesloney was pronounced deceased at the scene and Ms. Nesloney was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for injuries sustained from the vehicle crash.
