Family members seek answers in double murder-suicide inside Pearland home

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- A double murder-suicide mystery in Pearland has some relatives of the victims confused.

Grief-stricken family members arrived at the home on Creek Run Drive to learn two men and a woman were all shot to death in an apparent double murder-suicide.

Officers arrived at the 2000 block of Creek Run Drive at Castlewind Lane Wednesday just before 10:30 p.m. after they received information regarding a shooting at a home, police said.

Police found the bodies of three adults inside the home. Authorities say one man was the shooter. He shot a woman and a second man, before killing himself.

A relative named Lexis Johnson said, "I don't want to answer any questions. I'm headed to the police station."

Sean Jones says one of the men killed was his brother.

"There were no problems," Jones told ABC13.

He says he has no idea what went on inside the home last night that left his brother and another man dead, along with his brother's girlfriend.

"We don't know. Police won't tell us who did what. All I know is my brother is dead," said Jones.

He says his brother lived at the home with the woman killed, along with her granddaughter and a nurse who cared for her granddaughter with special needs.

Many neighbors told ABC13 a little girl lives at the home, but police can't say yet whether there was a child in the house when the fatal shooting happened.

Neighbors say the residents had only lived in the home about a year. No one knew them well but they said they hadn't witnessed any past problems.
