UPDATE: Six found dead inside Stone Oak area home

UPDATE 10:15 p.m.:

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — San Antonio police chief William McManus said six people — two adults and four children — were found dead inside a vehicle in the garage.


BEXAR COUNTY, Tex. (KTSA News) — People in a Stone Oak area are being evacuated as San Antonio police continue to investigate a hazmat situation.

San Antonio police chief William McManus said his department got a call for a welfare check by a friend of the family at around 10:30 Thursday morning.

Arriving officers noticed a heavy noxious odor.  There was also a cryptic note on the door that said ‘there were bodies or people inside and do not enter’ and the animals are in the freezer.  It’s not clear what that means.  No bodies have not yet been located in the house.

McManus said officers got a robot and drone to go inside the house and spotted what could be explosives inside the house.

The resident is a member of the military and lives there with a spouse and children.

Police have not been able to clear the house, fearing it could have been booby trapped.

The police evacuated people within a 150 yard perimeter around the property Thursday afternoon.

McManus said they do not know where the residents currently are.

San Antonio Fire Department spokesman Joe Arrington say far too many people received an evacuation notice that was caused by a glitch.
