A man and a woman were found dead. Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price said the deaths were part of a murder-suicide involving a husband and wife. The man shot and killed his wife, who is an employee of the medical examiner’s office, before killing himself, he said.
Both were found with gunshot wounds. Their names have not been revealed.
Price said the suspect possibly entered the building through an employee entrance.
“This is a secure facility. I have all access. I can’t go through the front. I don’t want to do too much (about how) he got in. He could have stood in the parking lot and had the same goal,” he said, according to the news outlet.

“You can have the best security in the world, and you can’t stop people who are determined, whatever evil they’re going to do,” he added. “He could have sat in the parking lot and done the same thing. He knew where she worked.”
