2 Fatally Shot Outside Gregg County Home

Two people were fatally shot outside their home on McCarver Street, just outside of Longview Thursday night.

Sheriff's Deputies received a 9-1-1 call around 7:46pm Thursday of a shooting at the residence.

"Every effort is being made at this time to identify the suspect responsible for this crime; and to proceed with criminal charges", advised Sheriff Maxey Cerliano.  "It is too early in the investigation to make further comment", said the sheriff.

"Statements are being obtained from witnesses in the neighborhood." said Captain Ken Hartley in a press release Friday morning.

The bodies have been sent to Southwest Institute of Forensic Science in Dallas for an autopsy.

The identities of the victims are not being released, pending notification of family members.

The incident is under investigation by the Gregg County Sheriff's Department, Longview Police, and Texas Rangers.
