HOLLYWOOD PARK, Texas (AP) - Police say the mayor of a South Texas town has died in an accident on his ranch in Atascosa County.

Hollywood Park police Deputy Chief Joe Quintero said Wednesday that Mayor William "Bill" Bohlke died in a livestock-related accident.

Quintero had no other details but said police do not suspect foul play in Monday's death. A message left Wednesday with the Atascosa County Sheriff's Office was not immediately returned.

Bohlke in May was elected mayor of Hollywood Park. The town of about 3,000 is located 10 miles north of San Antonio.

The San Antonio Express-News (bit.ly/O1URjJ) reports Mayor Pro Tem Steve Phillips will serve as acting mayor until a Sept. 8 council meeting.
