SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police now say they believe they know who pulled the trigger in an apparent murder-suicide at a Southwest Side apartment complex Monday that has left two people in critical condition.

Police said they believe a 20-year-old man shot his 18-year-old former girlfriend before turning the gun on himself after the woman recently ended their relationship.

Police said a woman arrived at an apartment in the 7400 block of Yarrow Boulevard at around 4:30 p.m. to find her daughter and her ex-boyfriend with gunshot wounds to the head.

Both were taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in critical condition.

There didn’t appear to be forced entry, but the woman told police that her daughter didn’t want her ex there, police said.

They were still in critical condition as of Tuesday morning. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
