BCSO: Woman shot dead, husband saying he fired on accident

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A woman is dead in northwest Bexar County, and her husband is telling law enforcement he accidentally shot her.

“Preliminary claim from the suspect is that it was an accidental shooting, at this point we don’t believe that to be the case,” said Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar.

Investigators say the shooting happened Wednesday around 10:40 a.m. in the 14400 block of Gunsight Pass.
