Bexar County Sheriff's deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in far West Bexar County Tuesday morning.

Deputies said a couple was found in their home in the 11000 block of Buck Canyon, near the intersection of Highway 90 and Loop 1604.

Investigators believe the couple had been dead since Saturday night.

A 55-year-old man was found with a single gunshot wound to his head.

A 50-year-old woman, identified by Northside Independent School District officials as Allen Elementary School teacher Deanna Tiller, appeared to have been shot multiple times, deputies said. Tiller was a music teacher at the school.

A schoolteacher who worked with Tiller made the discovery, deputies said.

Also at the home Tuesday morning was the couple's son, but investigators do not believe he is a suspect.
