44-Year-Old Man Arrested After Being Found Acting Erratic and Covered in Blood.

A 44-year-old San Antonio, Texas man has been arrested and charged with murder after police found him covered in blood and acting erratically.

On Monday morning after 7am authorities were called to an apartment complex in the 6100 block of Vance Jackson Road on the city's Northwest side. When they arrived they found Carlos Portillo screaming and behaving strangely. Portillo's clothing and body, from the waist up, were visibly stained with blood and when police inquired about the blood, Portillo said it belonged to his wife.

Police entered an apartment nearby and found the body of a woman inside dead.

According to a report given to KSAT by Sgt. Steven Bratina, the woman, identified as 51-year-old Sheila Jo Portillo Hanks, suffered at least one gunshot wound.

Police also found a gun in the area which they believe could be the weapon used in the woman’s death.

Homicide investigators were seen going door to door, trying to find someone who might have information about what happened. It has not been made public, at this time, if any of those neighbors questioned had any insight on the incident.

The motive for the shooting is still unknown at this time.

Although there is no known speculation on whether or not he was impaired, Portillo was also charged with drug possession. Records show he faced multiple charges for drug possession and vehicle burglary in Bexar County from 1998 to 2017.
