ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Investigators with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office are investigating a fatal shooting incident after two bodies were found near a home in the 1500 block of Willie Nerren Road Friday morning.

The initial 911 call came in at 7:22 a.m. Friday after the bodies of a man and a woman were found in the yard of the home on Willie Nerren Road, according to Capt. Alton Lenderman with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office. The people found at the scene were identified as Robin Turney, 58, and Sharon Turney, 59.

Lenderman said the 911 came in after someone spotted a car associated with that home in the ditch on Willie Nerren Road. The person called 911 after he or she saw a woman's purse in the abandoned car and became concerned.

When ACSO deputies went out to the home to do a welfare check, they found the Turneys' bodies lying facedown in the yard. Lenderman said both people had apparent gunshot wounds.

Lenderman also said weapons were found on the scene, but at this time, investigators do not know who the weapons belonged to or whether they were used in the shooting incident.

According to Lenderman, the house wasn't the Turneys' primary residence.
