The homicide scene took place in the family residence located in the 100 block of River Creek Lane, in Annetta South, in Parker County.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and took Jake Evans into custody without further incident.

Evans stated he used a .22 revolver in the shootings. The exact cause and manners of death is pending autopsies from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office.
