It happened around 3:45 a.m. in the 10800 block of Dapple Grey Lane in the University area off Back Creek Church Road.
CMPD was responding to a call about a person shooting at family members. When officers arrived, they found one man and one woman with gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead. Their names had not been released as of 7:30 a.m.
Investigators believed the man shot his wife and tried to shoot at another relative before killing himself. No one else was hurt.
