The unidentified occupant with the gun fired several rounds, hitting all four suspects and ultimately killing one.

The setting was a peaceful, rustic community of winding roads and upscale homes. Inside one of those homes, Bexar County, Texas sheriff’s officials found a scene of horror.

Police: 3 young children found dead in Texas apartment

Police: 3 young children found dead in Texas apartment Authorities in Texas are searching for a 27-year-old man after three young children were found dead Thursday in an apartment. 

A woman and two girls believed to be in their teens had been shot to death. Another person living at the residence in Anaqua Springs Ranch, a gated development of luxury homes near Boerne in the county’s far Northwest Side, found their bodies when he returned home around 9 a.m. Thursday.

Sheriff Javier Salazar said the two girls appeared to be homicide victims. He would not speculate on whether the woman, believed to be in her 30s, died as a result of a suicide or a homicide.

“The medical examiner will make that final determination,” Salazar said.

Family members who gathered at the neighborhood identified the woman as Nichol Olsen. Authorities had not confirmed that name or identified the other victims late Thursday.

Texas man turns himself in after three children found dead

Texas man turns himself in after three children found dead Texas police found three dead children and a wounded woman Thursday evening, and searched for the suspect until he surrendered.

Salazar confirmed the three were family members, but did not specify how exactly they were related.

Public records show that Nichol Leila Olsen, 37, has a state license to work as a cosmetologist. Social media accounts show Olsen worked as a hairstylist.

“She was just a very good person,” said Cathy Muñiz of San Antonio, a former client of Olsen’s reached by the San Antonio Express-News. “It’s just too much of a shock. I don’t even know what to think. It doesn’t even make any sense. She was always so positive.”

Muñiz confirmed that Olsen had children and expressed disbelief that she would have anything to do with the shootings.

“I just can’t see that she would do that to herself or her children because they were everything to her,” Muñiz said.

The residence where the shootings occurred sits on 2.7 acres of land, spans 4,500 square feet and is valued at almost $1 million, according to Bexar County Appraisal District records. The homeowner, a man who purchased the house last year, did not respond to the Express-News’ requests for comment Thursday.

US border agent pleads not guilty to killing 4 Texas women

US border agent pleads not guilty to killing 4 Texas women A U.S. Border Patrol agent in Texas has pleaded not guilty to capital murder and other charges in the September killings of four women who prosecutors say were sex workers. Juan David Ortiz entered the pleas Thursday in the border city of Laredo. Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz has said he will seek the death penalty if Ortiz is convicted of capital murder. He contends that Ortiz told investigators he was "doing a service" by killing the women.

Salazar said the three shooting victims lived at the home in the 11300 block of Anaqua Springs with the man who found their bodies. That man had stayed elsewhere Wednesday night, but Salazar could not provide further details on where or why.

The man was romantically involved with the older victim in her 30s, Salazar confirmed. He was being interviewed by sheriff’s detectives Thursday.

“It’s way too early to tell who’s a suspect and who’s a witness,” the sheriff said.

All three victims suffered gunshot wounds to their upper bodies. Sheriff’s officials declined to say in which rooms of the house they were found or if anyone had left a note explaining the events.

Shootings are not a typical occurrence in the neighborhood.

“It’s just a shocking thing that you would never expect to happen here,” said Laura Rendon, who lives in the neighborhood. “It’s a very peaceful, quiet neighborhood and nothing like this has ever happened before.”

Later in the day, several relatives and friends of the victims arrived at Anaqua Springs Ranch. Some solemnly, and others frantically, made their way to the front gate, where they were halted by security guards who blocked their access.

California officer shot, killed; suspect found dead

California officer shot, killed; suspect found dead A Davis officer was shot and killed Thursday night and the suspected gunman was found dead in a home, police said. Natalie Corona, 22, was taken to the hospital, where she later died, Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said. The gunman was found dead early Friday morning. Police said it appears he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooting happened just before 7 p.m. Thursday near 5th and C streets in downtown Davis. Corona was shot while responding to a three-vehicle crash, police said.

At least one man jumped the fence and ran inside, while several others found alternate routes or were permitted entrance. Almost all of them declined to comment on the slayings.

Later Thursday night, the sheriff’s office escorted a 2013 Ford pickup being towed away from the neighborhood. That vehicle is registered to the man who owns the house where the shootings occurred, public records show.

Authorities found records showing sheriff’s officials made four visits to the home last year, a spokesman said. Three of those visits were attempts to serve court papers, while a fourth visit was to document a reported theft.

The agency did not immediately locate any reports of gunshots in the area Wednesday night or early Thursday, but there may be good reasons for that.

“They’re multimillion dollar homes, very big lots and the homes are probably very well constructed,” Salazar said. “So it’s quite possible nobody heard anything.”

He asked anyone who saw or heard anything unusual Wednesday night or Thursday morning to call the sheriff’s office at 210-335-6000. He also requested that nearby homeowners with outward facing video surveillance equipment, such as doorbell cameras, check their footage for signs of anything unusual.

“If it seems like it’s something out of the ordinary, we’d like to know about it,” Salazar said.

“Naturally, this is not a common area for us to see this sort of activity, but it just goes to show that crime really knows no boundaries, geographic, socioeconomic or otherwise. It can happen anywhere, literally.”
