Woman and her ex-boyfriend found shot inside San Antonio apartment, police say

Police say a mother found her 18-year-old daughter and the daughter's boyfriend shot in what is believed to be an attempted murder-suicide.

A mother found her daughter and her daughter's ex-boyfriend shot inside an apartment unit on the city's southwest side Monday afternoon, the San Antonio Police Department said.

The shooting, which is believed to have been an attempted murder-suicide happened in the 7400 block of Yarrow Boulevard around 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Police said the woman had just ended the relationship with the man. Both were found inside the bedroom of the apartment. Each had a bullet wound to the upper part of the body.

They were still alive when the woman went inside, and they were taken to a local hospital, each in critical condition.

Authorities on Monday said they don't know whether foul play was involved, but they said there was no evidence of forced entry. When asked if the situation was a murder-suicide, the officer replied, "That's what it's looking like."

The female victim is 18 and the male suspect is 20, officials say.

No one else was reportedly inside the apartment, and no other injuries were reported.

The handgun used in the incident was recovered, police said. The investigation will continue.
