Early morning Monday, the San Antonio Police Department responded to a man shot dead in his truck at a construction site on the 5200 block of Eisenhauer.

Tuesday morning, police responded to a murder-suicide at a far East Side business on Foster Road. A man shot his brother and then turned the gun on himself, police said.

Several witnesses called police Wednesday night after a man was shot in a West Side McDonald’s parking lot on Culebra. That man, died from his injuries early Thursday morning.

Not even two hours later, police were called for a woman shot dead in the chest after she pulled into a driveway of a home on West Olmos Park Drive.
