At approximately 11:15 p.m., Houston police responded to a shooting at an apartment complex in Villa de Matel, near Fair Oaks.
Upon arrival, police found a man and woman, believed to be in their 20s, dead at the home. They had a five-year relationship.
The couple are believed to have had some sort of argument when the man shot the woman and then turned the gun on himself, police said.
“Someone appeared to be moving out of the apartment, or was about to be moved out, and that may have escalated the situation,” said a sergeant with the HPD’s Homicide Division.
Houston police say they previously received calls at the home about domestic violence.
