The shooting happened around 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday in the 1500 block of Delgado Street.

San Antonio police Chief William McManus said she was found dead in front of the home. Police believe her teenage son shot her in the back with a shotgun.

Witnesses told officers that Gonzalez and her son were in an argument, a preliminary report from SAPD states. She walked outside through the front door and once she was outside, her son shot her, police said.

The teenager attempted to flee to another home after the shooting, but he was later arrested without further incident, McManus said.

Police said they seized the shotgun used by the teenager.

McManus stated that previous 911 calls to the home outside the last couple of weeks were not domestic-related.
