Murder/Attempted Suicide – Wounded – Man (San Antonio, TX)


SAN ANTONIO — The woman who was killed in a suspected murder-suicide Tuesday near Calaveras Lake has been identified as Virginia Campos, 47.

Campos died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office, which has listed the death as a homicide.

The couple lived in the 9900 block of New Sulphur Springs Road, where deputies arrived Tuesday afternoon after reports that a man had shot his wife two times, killing her, and then tried to kill himself.

The husband, who has not been named, was taken to the intensive care unit at San Antonio Military Medical Center. The couple’s adult daughter and 2-year-old grandchild were there when the shooting occurred, authorities said.

Deputies had previously responded to domestic disturbances at the home, said Paul Berry, spokesman for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the couple’s adult daughter was at the residence but was in the driveway when the shooting occurred.

The daughter told investigators she did not see her father shoot her mother. But she did see him exit the home with an apparent gunshot wound before entering a large shed and shooting himself again, she told authorities.

“She did see the father with the gun pointed at himself,” said sheriff’s office spokesman Paul Berry, adding that deputies have previously responded to calls “of a domestic nature” at the home.

SAN ANTONIO — A woman was shot to death Tuesday evening and a man sent to the hospital after what authorities described as an attempted murder-suicide.
