A call from southern Minnesota lead to the discovery of a double murder-suicide more than 1,200 miles away.
The Associated Press reports San Antonio police received a call from authorities in New Ulm, asking them to conduct a welfare check on a truck-driving team that hadn't been heard from in more than two weeks.
Officers went to a home on San Antonio's west side Thursday morning and found three shooting victims: a 76-year-old man, a 67-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man.
The woman was found dead in the bed, the man in his 40s was found lying on the bedroom floor and the elderly man was in a chair in the living room.
Police believe the elderly man shot the other two victims before turning a .22 caliber rifle on himself.
San Antonio Express-News says their bodies had already begun decomposing.
Police have not released the identities of the victims, but tell the Star Tribune that the three are from Texas.
A neighbor told reporters that the elderly man and woman were dating and the other dead man was the woman's son.
It's still not clear if any of the victims have a connection to Minnesota.
