The medical examiner's office has not ruled on whether the couple's death was a murder-suicide.

Two large dogs also were found shot to death with the couple on the couple's bed, Keller police said.

Responding to a welfare check call, Keller police arrived at the home in the 1500 block of Chase Oaks Drive about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Officers found the home locked, but police forced their way in when they detected an odor.

Police said the man was lying in the bed with a gun and authorities also found a note. Authorities released no information on the note.

Based on evidence found at the scene, investigators say they believe the shooting may have happened 10 days earlier, on Jan. 17. A restaurant receipt dated Jan. 17 was discovered in the residence, police said.
