EL CENIZO, TX (KGNS) - Two people are found dead inside a home in a south Webb County community on Wednesday morning.

The incident happened at around 8 a.m. in El Cenizo at a home in the 500 block of Valdez Street.

The Webb County Sheriff’s Office says they received a call from a resident who said they found two relatives deceased inside their home.

Authorities believe that at some point Florentino and Guillermina Garcia were a couple but had separated and there may have been some type of disagreement between the two.

According to reports, Florentino shot Guillermina in the head right before taking his own life by shooting himself in the head.

The bodies were immediately taken to the Coroner’s Office for further examination, but the sheriff’s office is calling it an apparent murder-suicide.

Florentino and Guillermina leave behind two sons and two daughters behind.

The investigation remains ongoing.
