HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Two people are dead after a murder-suicide inside their home, according to authorities.

Investigators said they believe the couple was going through a divorce and the man killed his wife before killing himself.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office said a woman who just came home from school called 911 around 6:15 p.m. Monday after finding her mother shot to death inside her parked car in the garage.

When authorities arrived to the home at 20019 Rene Creek Court, they found the gas left on inside the home.

Authorities said when the fire department arrived and cleared out the house, they found a male in his 50s with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They found his body in the closet of a master bedroom.

Sgt. Ben Beall said he believes the man shot and killed the woman when she arrived home from work.

Authorities have not released name of the two individuals.
