Four Dead in San Antonio House Fire, Murder-Suicide

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Emergency personnel responding to a San Antonio house fire found four people dead in an apparent murder-suicide, police said Tuesday. Police spokeswoman Romana Lopez said officers received a report of a family disturbance Monday at a home in southwest San Antonio just south of Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. Responding officers found the house in flames and two bodies in the front yard with gunshot wounds. Firefighters were unable to immediately knock down the flames because the suspect was still considered a threat. The bodies of the suspect and his grandmother were later found inside, authorities said. It's believed the bodies in the front yard — a man and a woman both in their 60s — were pulled from the home by neighbors who rushed over after seeing the flames, authorities said. The three people who were killed lived together in the home, police Chief William McManus said Monday. Officers responded after the sister of the man suspected of killing the three called police saying her brother was overturning tables and breaking items in the home, McManus said. The sister was not at the home when she called police. San Antonio Police cordoned off the neighborhood where a suspect killed three people. A man is accused of killing his grandmother and two others before committing suicide in a South Side home that was set on fire Monday, Aug. 5, 2019.

Sexual harassment, gender discrimination and verbal abuse are contributing to high rates of burnout among female physicians, according to a new report published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The new study suggests that the problem is even more common among female physicians, specifically surgical residents. The researchers surveyed surgical resident...
