SAN ANTONIO – Two people -- a man and a woman -- are dead after they were both found stabbed early Thursday morning at a home in Southeast Bexar County, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said. 

The stabbings were reported around 6 a.m. in the 4400 block of Lost Hills Drive, which is located not far from Interstate 37 and Mathis Road.

Deputies said a neighbor on Lost Hills Drive called the authorities after hearing a loud disturbance across the street and was on the phone with dispatchers when she heard a gunshot.

Deputies arrived and noticed a car outside a home across the street from the neighbor with the trunk open. Deputies said they thought it was odd and took a look around the property. That's when, officials said, a deputy found a man in his 60s stabbed on the front porch and then found a woman, also in her 60s, dead from stab wounds inside the home.  

The injured man was taken to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, a sheriff's spokesman said. Early reports from the sheriff's office presented conflicting information about the injured man's status, however the man was confirmed dead around 9 a.m.

At this time it unclear why the stabbings occurred. Previously a deputy said they were looking for a suspect but a public information officer said it’s too early to tell what happened, or if there’s another person involved.
