SAN ANTONIO - Police are investigating a possible murder-suicide on the city’s North Side.

Authorities responded to the Indigo Apartment complex in the 11500 block of Braesview near Northwest Military Highway inside Wurzbach Parkway on Wednesday afternoon.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus believes the bodies may have been in the apartment where they were found for at least a week. He said they showed signs of decomposing.

"We went in and found two dead bodies. One male, one female — boyfriend, girlfriend. Male is in his 30s. Female (is) in her mid to late 20s. It appears to be a murder-suicide,” McManus said.

McManus said it appears the man shot the woman with a shotgun, but investigators are still working to process the scene and figure out what happened.
