Police were called to the house around 6:30 that morning for a welfare check after a neighbor reported hearing a loud pop from the home.

When officers tried to make contact with the couple inside that home no one answered, so they put Anderson Elementary School on lockdown and called in the special operations team.

Inside a bedroom, officers found the bodies of a man and woman, along with a small pistol.

Police said both had gunshot wounds.

Police said they're investigating, but they're not looking for any other suspects.
