On Thursday morning, detectives returned to the scene to continue looking for evidence and any possible witnesses.

One woman, who did not want to reveal her identity, dropped off a stuffed animal outside the home as a show of sympathy.

“It hurts my heart that the children, you know, unfortunately, one passed away,” the neighbor said. “Just all in all, everyone in the household got hit.”

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office at (210) 335-6000.
