Harris County medical examiners have two more bodies on their hands.
A little before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, say police, the cops got a call asking them to check on someone at 1926 Spillers Lane, in the Spring Branch West part of town. When the officers got there, they found a man and woman, both dead.
Police say it appears as though the woman was shot and then the male turned the gun on himself. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Their names and ages have not been released.
Anyone with information about this case can call the Houston police homicide division at 713-308-3600.
