HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. (AP) — Police have released the names of a 38-year-old couple they think died in a murder suicide in Holly Springs.

Officials say Robert and Amber Seymore were found shot to death in their home Monday morning.

Spokesman Mark Andrews says a relative discovered the couple dead after taking their 6-year-old and 8-year-old to school. The relative took their 2-year-old son to a neighbor’s home and called 911.

Police have not said who shot whom. But officers say Amber Seymore had called police Nov. 23 to file a domestic violence complaint against her husband.

The couple had lived in the neighborhood for about 18 months.
