Both the man and woman suffered gunshot wounds to the head. Police said this isn't the first time they have been called to the home.
Lt. David Nabors, Rowlett Police, "We've had two previous calls over here...one of them was an assault case back in February."
Shirley Ross, Neighbor, "It's never happened before - so it's the first - it's kinda scary but then you know that it's all within so."
James McFadden, Neighbor, "I've been here my whole life - pretty quiet, pretty friendly, never any problems."
