Police were called to a home in northeast Harris County, near Houston, and found Arsenio Gonzalez, 45, and Maria Gonzalez, 42, dead on their front lawn.

Maria is said to have shown signs of severe trauma while Arsenio suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Their five children, aged between 7 and 16, were also found at the scene.

However, authorities do not believe the children witnessed what happened between the parents.

Authorities said the deaths appeared to have occurred after a “family Christmas”.

The children were unharmed and Child Protective Services is moving in to place them with relatives, police said.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez Confirm the original details in a series of Twitter posts.

“The couple had just returned home from a family Christmas celebration when the assault and shooting occurred,” he wrote.

“Children Protective Services are assisting in bringing the children back to their families.”

No updates have been provided on the children’s condition as of Monday afternoon.

Authorities are not sure exactly what happened at the Texas home
