SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police believe the discovery of two men and a woman shot to death in a house is a double murder and suicide.

Police received a call Thursday morning from authorities in New Ulm, Minn., asking for help checking on a truck-driving team employed by Minnesota-based J and R Schugel Trucking that hadn't reported in more than two weeks.

Officers who arrived reported hearing sound from a television, looked through a window and saw a man dead in a chair.

Once inside, police discovered another man dead on a bedroom floor and the woman wrapped in a blanket in another room.

Names of the victims have not been released by authorities in San Antonio. Authorities do say the man in the chair, tentatively identified in police reports as the gunman, was 76 years old. The woman is listed in police reports as 67 years old and the second man found in the bedroom was 45.

Their relationships, and exactly where the three people involved are from wasn't immediately disclosed by Texas authorities.
