2 dead in reported murder-suicide on Southwest Side, SAPD says

Police said a call came in from a 20-year-old woman claiming she was shot Friday afternoon

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department said it is investigating a murder-suicide on the Southwest Side.

The shooting happened Friday afternoon at an apartment complex on the 10100 block of State Highway 16, just south of Southwest Loop 410.

San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus said a woman called 911 allegedly saying, “I’ve been shot.”

McManus said the dispatcher then heard multiple shots while the woman was still on the line.

When police arrived at the complex, officers found a man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. McManus ruled the shooting as a murder-suicide.

Investigators identified Saturday that a 2-year-old and a 1-year-old were found locked in a room. They were not physically harmed during the shooting.

Police officials said Saturday that the man and woman were both 20 years old.

McManus said Friday the man and woman’s relationship to each other is not yet known.
