Lt. Tony Dana says about an hour later a 911 call was received that two people were dead in the home.
Justice of the Peach Mitch Shamburger identified the victims as 68-year-old Billy Hays and 71-year-old Bonnie Hays.
One person was seen being transported, in a patrol car, away from the scene.
The sheriff's department did not immediately return a message Tuesday from The Associated Press.
Pine Springs is a town of 150, located 90 miles southeast of Dallas.
