SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police believe some sort of dispute or fight led to the fatal shooting of a woman Tuesday night at an apartment complex on the Northwest Side of town.
Officers found Lydia Morales, 44, suffering from a gunshot wound when they responded around 9:30 p.m. to the Forest Ridge apartments.
Morales was rushed to a hospital where she died.
Officers at the scene, in the 7800 block of Chambers Road, said a man told them he shot Morales in self-defense.
They said it may have happened as the result of a dispute or fight involving two men.
A preliminary police report said it was unclear whether Morales was involved in that situation. However, she was struck by the gunfire.
At the apartment complex Wednesday morning, a man told KSAT 12 News off-camera that he is related to Morales.
He said the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between Morales and a neighbor.
Police said the case is still under investigation.
At this time, though, they have not made any arrests in this case, the police report said.
