SAN ANTONIO – A neighbor’s call about a gunshot in the middle of the night has led to San Antonio police opening a murder investigation.

They say they received that call around 1 a.m. Wednesday from someone who lives at an apartment complex in the 6800 block of Glendora Avenue.

The caller also told police that the door to a nearby apartment was slightly ajar and someone was inside, lying on the floor.

When officers arrived, they found a 44-year-old man inside that apartment, dead from a gunshot wound to his head.

Police say they did not find any weapons inside the home, leading them to believe that someone else shot him.

Although they spent found hours combing through the home for evidence, they did not make any arrests.

Officers at the scene also were not able to offer any information on what led to the shooting.
