BROWNFIELD, TX (KCBD) - The Brownfield Police Department is currently investigating what it believes to be a murder/suicide, which happened in the 400 block of E. Lake Street Saturday.

KCBD talked with Brownfield PD Chief Tony Serbantez. We are told that at approximately 2 p.m. Saturday Brownfield PD officers responded to reports of shots fired.

When officers arrived, they found Uriel Garza, 68, had shot and killed his wife, Veronica, in the backyard of their home. Garza then turned the gun on himself.

Investigators say other family members were inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Serbantez says that the Brownfield PD has never been called out to their home for domestic disturbances.

We will continue to update this story as we learn more information.
