2 men fatally shot in laundry room of Southwest Side apartment complex, police say

Neighbors report hearing multiple gunshots

Two men were fatally shot while they were in the laundry room of an apartment complex on the Southwest Side, according to San Antonio police.

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are working to learn the details behind what appears to be a double murder at a Southwest Side apartment complex.

Officers who responded to a 911 call after 11 p.m. Sunday found the bodies of two men in the laundry room of the complex, located in the 100 block of Rustleaf Drive.

According to Officer Nicholas Soliz, a public information officer for SAPD, neighbors heard multiple gunshots before noticing the two men on the ground.

He said both of the men appeared to be in their 30s.

Soliz noted that investigators have not found anyone yet who actually saw anything pertaining to the shooting, itself.

While briefing news crews, he did not mention anything about weapons being found at the scene.

Based on that, it appears someone else shot the men, as opposed to them shooting one another.

Monday morning, there was still blood visible both inside and outside the laundry room.

There also were noticeable bullet holes in the walls.

Soliz said the investigation is ongoing.
