Two found dead in Watauga home following SWAT response, police say

A man and a woman were found dead Saturday inside a Watauga house, police said.

The incident involved a suicide, said Lt. Jason Babcock, a Watauga police spokesman.

Babcock did not respond Saturday night to an email seeking to clarify the manner and cause of both deaths. He also did not describe the relationship between the man and woman. Authorities had not released the names of either person Saturday night.

Police said the man was in distress when he called 911 at about 1 p.m. and suggested he may have harmed himself and another person inside the house, which is located in the 6400 block of Loma Vista Drive.

When police arrived, no one inside the house responded to efforts to contact them. SWAT officers then went to the scene.

Police found the bodies when they entered the house at about 6 p.m.

Police asked residents of Loma Vista and Green Ridge drives to stay inside for much of the afternoon, but the area was cleared by 7 p.m.
