Authorities found Guzman shot in the chest inside the home. Police say she was likely shot in a hallway.

A 2-year-old boy and a 12-year-old boy were also inside the house. Police questioned the 12-year-old cousin who told them she was shot outside, but police said the story did not add up.

“Preliminary search of the crime scene doesn’t match the story,” said Lt. Brian Head, with the San Antonio Police Department. “There was some evidence found in the upstairs bedroom."

No adults were home at the time of the shooting.
