HOUSTON, TX - Investigators are on the scene of a double homicide in southwest Houston.

Just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, Houston Police got a report of a shooting in progress at a home near Tidewater Dr. and Ambrose St. When officers got to the scene, they found two people dead. Investigators say the shooting victims are a couple in their 50s and the suspected gunman is their adult son.

"We're still early in the investigation and haven't had a chance to sort out all the witness statements," said HPD Sgt. Warren Meeler.

For that reason, officers aren't revealing much about the case. They do say that the suspect and his parents weren't the only ones in the home; the suspect's children and other adult family members were there too.

We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
