TATUM, TX (KLTV) - The Tatum Police Department is investigating a murder suicide that took place over the weekend on 635 N. Jefferson St., next to Tatum High School football stadium.

Authorities said a man shot a woman then shot himself. 

Neighbors identified the woman as Aimee Griffith. Family members tell KLTV 7 Griffith was home with two boys, her 7-year-old son, and another 9-year-old, when the shooting happened.

"I do believe they just walked down the road and went to my neighbor's house and told them to call 911," said neighbor Nathan Clark. "It's just unheard of around here. You don't hear (about) people killing other people. You know it does happen," he said. 

Authorities said the bodies have been sent off for an autopsy and the case is under investigation.
Funeral services for Griffith will be 10 a.m., Friday at Bar None Cowboy Church.
