Homeowners in a Northeast El Paso are shocked tonight after they learned two elderly people were killed just outside their home.
Police are still very early on in the investigation.
They identifed the two victims as an elderly couple in their 60's.
They were found shot to death at their home here on the 10,100 block of kirtwood.
Detectives do have a suspect in custody.
The incident happened just after 5:30 this afternoon.
Within moments dozens of officers swarmed the home.
There they found a 68 yearold woman and 67 year old man dead from multiple gunshot wounds.
Police say they were found in the backyard.
Emotions ran high as family members arrived on the scene and found out what happened.
Police haven't released much more information.
However witnesses say after the shots were fired they saw a woman fleeing the scene.
Family freinds tell us the victim's own daughter is being held as a suspect in the case.
Something investigators would not confirm or deny.
