VIDEO: Two men are dead and a woman is in the hospital after a chaotic sequence of events on the south side Tuesday afternoon involving gunfire and a house eaten up by flames that San Antonio Fire officials say could have threatened the entire block. According to San Antonio Police chief William McManus, officers responded to the 200 block of Belden Avenue around 4 p.m. after hearing of a shooting-in-progress. McManus said an unidentified man had "severely" beaten up his wife inside their house before she was able to escape. The woman began to ran across the street, McManus said, while the suspect used a rifle to fire "a number of rounds" in her direction. When police arrived, they began to evacuate as many people as they could while advising other residents in the area to shelter-in-place.
