SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – What started out as a fatal 18-wheeler accident investigation is now a homicide case.

Police responded to a call for an overturned big rig around 3 a.m. Tuesday  on Austin Street at  Casa Blanca near IH 35.

KSAT-TV reports the man found dead in the truck had a gunshot wound, and a witness told police that another man was seen getting out of the 18-wheeler and running away.

Investigators also are trying to determine whether the 18-wheeler is linked to  another death early Tuesday in Comal County.
