SAN ANTONIO – A man who was found dead at a Stone Oak home on Tuesday morning has been identified by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Joseph Hines, 45, was pronounced dead at 9:50 a.m.

SAPD Chief William McManus said Hines was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a home in the 900 block of Cheyenne Creek, not far from Knights Cross Drive and Evans Road.

His daughter, 24, also shot herself and was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

A 50-year-old woman — who is Hines’ wife and the 24-year-old’s mother — was not injured and was speaking with police, McManus said.

McManus said he was “not going to speculate” on what happened, but reiterated there was no danger to the public.

“We don’t know exactly what went down or how it went down,” he said.

Only one weapon was found.

McManus said police have responded to about four calls at the home in the past few years. The calls were for mental health issues and disturbance, he said.

This is a developing story.
