Man, woman dead in apparent murder-suicide in League City, police say

LEAGUE CITY, Texas – A man and a woman were found dead inside a home in League City on Sunday, police said. 

Police said they were called around 8:30 a.m. to the 300 block of Moody Avenue for a report of a disturbance. Shortly after arriving on the scene, officers heard what sounded like a single gunshot from inside the home, police said.

After entering the home, police found the two adults. There were three children inside the home at the time of the shooting, but they were unharmed, police said.

The identities of the man and woman have not yet been released. Their deaths are believed to be the result of a murder-suicide.

A close friend of the female said the woman's boyfriend had mental issues. 

"I think it's important that people understand that this murder-suicide happened because the man had a mental issue that wasn't taken care of properly. He had a lot of troubles getting the resources that he needed. He had an issue getting medication. She tried to help him," said the woman's close friend. 

The victim leaves behind three children ages 15, 12 and 5.

The case remains under investigation.
