SAN ANTONIO – Storms roared through San Antonio on Thursday, unleashing heavy winds and dumping small hail and brief heavy rain in its wake.

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a man to find out if he was killed by a lightning strike.

BCSO officials said a man was working on the roof of a home at 27607 Bordelon Way in the Timberwood Park area around the time the storms were approaching the area.
