BEXAR COUNTY, Tex. (KTSA News) — A woman was killed and another wounded after a shooting and stabbing at a northwest San Antonio shopping center Wednesday afternoon.
San Antonio police chief William McManus said officers were called to a barber shop in the 11300 block of Bandera Road near Loop 1604 shortly after noon for a reporting of a cutting.
When they arrived, they found a woman in her 20s dead from a gunshot wound at Diesel barber shop at Bandera Oaks Shopping Center, and another woman in her 20s stabbed outside the Pei Wei in the same center.
McManus said there was some sort of disturbance — the nature of it not currently known — at the barber shop. That escalated, leading the suspect — a man in his mid-30s — to shoot the woman in the store.
The chief said it was not a robbery and the barber shop was open with an appointment at the time.
The man then stabbed the other woman multiple times. Her condition is not currently known, but McManus said she was talking when she was taken to an area hospital.
The police chief said the suspect is not currently in custody, but he said he expects an arrest will be made soon.
The investigation continues.
