SAN ANTONIO – A pregnant teen is dead after she was shot to death on the city’s Northwest Side.

San Antonio police officers said they initially responded to a call for an attempted suicide. They found a 35-year-old man who shot himself in the upper body.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he remains in serious condition.

While officers were at the scene, they learned the man may have hurt someone at a nearby apartment complex.

Police officers went to the apartment complex and noticed one of the apartments had signs of forced entry. When officers went in, they found a 15-year-old girl who had been shot to death.

The girl was rushed to a hospital because they found out she was pregnant. Both the mother and the near-term baby did not survive.

A 1-year-old baby was also inside the apartment at that time. Police said the baby was not harmed.

Police said Jennifer Delgado, 15, and the man knew each other but won’t confirm what their relationship was to each other.

A family member of the teen is at the scene waiting for further details.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, is facing capitol murder charges, police said.
