SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police are investigating what they believe may be a possible murder-suicide at a Northwest Side home.

Two people were found dead at the home in the 5000 block of Sunset Glade in the Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon, San Antonio police said.

Two children -- a 14-year-old and a 10-year-old -- told police they heard gunshots overnight but didn't check anything out until Wednesday morning.

Investigators said a 48-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman were found upstairs with gunshot wounds to their heads. A gun was found under the man's body.

Relatives said their relationship was contentious and that the woman had made the man move out of the home, but allowed him to return and stay for the holidays. 

Investigators have not identified the two people or said what relation they are to the children.

Police investigators said a 20-year-old sibling will take care of the younger children.

No other information was immediately made available.
