Police say a man in his forties shot his girlfriend several times inside the home they shared in the Government Hill neighborhood on the city's east side early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The man then walked into the front yard and shot himself in the head.
When emergency crews arrived, they found the woman dead on the floor of the home, with four bullet wounds in her body.
The man was still breathing, so he was rushed to SAMMC in extremely critical condition. If he survives, he is expected to face a murder charge.
The incident happened on Sandmeyer St, which is just north of I-35 off New Braunfels, just south of Ft. Sam Houston.
