An off-duty South Texas police officer has died after being shot while closing a tattoo shop that he co-owned.

San Antonio police are seeking two masked men who opened fire just after 10 p.m. CDT Sunday on 27-year-old Balcones Heights police Officer Julian Pesina.

Balcones Heights police Chief Henry Dominguez says Pesina had worked a day shift on Sunday. The shooting happened several hours later as Pesina was closing his tattoo shop. Pesina was transported to a San Antonio hospital, where he died.

Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the shooting outside the business that Pesina owned with a relative.

Further details were not immediately available Monday.
