San Marcos police are investigating a “suspicious” incident that left one woman dead and sent a man who lived with her to the hospital early Friday morning.

Police have identified the 23-year-old woman who died Friday as Misty Amber Davis.

Police received a call from the 25-year-old man around 1:01 a.m. Friday saying he had been shot in his home on the 1300 block of Barbara Drive, according to a press release from the city. Police and EMS arrived on the scene and found Davis unconscious. She was later pronounced dead at the residence.

The man was treated at Brackenridge Hospital before being discharged the same day, the release said.

Police are not releasing further information until an autopsy is completed, according to the release.
