The incident happened around 12:15 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 3800 block of Parkdale, according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
McManus said an officer was handling a traffic accident across the street from the complex when he heard gunshots ring out. The officer then went over to the complex to investigate.
That’s when he found two people, a man and a woman in their 40s or 50s, dead outside of a first-floor apartment, according to SAPD.
He also noticed a man, Michael Burger, 20, holding an AR rifle and a shotgun, McManus said. Burger took cover between two vehicles, causing the officer to back up.
Police said Burger popped up moments later from in between the two vehicles and the officer shouted for him to drop his weapons before firing several rounds in his direction.
