Police investigate double shooting in southeast Arlington

ARLINGTON -- Investigators are looking into a possible murder-suicide at a southeast Arlington home, according to officials.

Police were called to the home about 2:45 a.m. Sunday by the man, who told police that a woman had been shot at the home in the 2000 block of Knoll Crest Drive, according to Lt. Blake Miller, a police spokesman.

“It appears that while officers were on the way to the location the male took his own life,” Miller said.

Officers forced their way into the townhome, which is northwest of the intersection of Highway 360 and Interstate 20, and found Marcus Carr, 32, and Alma Clerkley, 55, dead in the home.

Miller said police found a weapon inside and that there was no one else at the scene.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office classified Carr’s death as a suicide and Clerkley’s as a homicide. Both died from gunshot wounds to the head, according to the medical examiner.

Police hadn’t determined Sunday if Carr and Clerkley were married, but Miller said police believe they were in a long-term relationship.

Carr and Clerkley both lived at the home where they were found Sunday, according to the medical examiner.

Miller said police hadn’t been called to the home before Sunday and that the couple haven’t been involved in any assaults in Arlington.
