ODESSA - Police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide. Police responded to a welfare check call around 2:30 at the Spanish Oaks Apartment Complex located at 4630 Oakwood in apartment #206.

Police had to force their way into the apartment after no response was heard from inside the apartment.  Upon entry, police and firefighters found two victims, 23-year-old Jarrett Wesley Weaver, and 22-year-old Kelsei Miller Weaver were found shot to death in a downstairs living room area.

Police believe it is a murder-suicide.

NewsWest 9 has also learned that the two victims were a married couple.

One neighbor informed NewsWest 9 that he had heard gunshots late last night at the complex but didn't call police because residents hear gunshots at the complex all the time.

The Medical Examiner pronounced the victims deceased just before 6:00p.m.

The bodies will be transported to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
