LAMPASAS, TX (KXXV) -

The Lampasas Police Department said a preliminary investigation has revealed last week’s shooting in Lampasas was a murder-suicide.

According to the department, 47-year-old Deborah Chance shot 24-year-old Millie Chance (Marshall) over a domestic disturbance.

Police say Millie had decided to leave Deborah, which prompted the 47-year-old to point a gun at Millie.

The woman on the line, who police believe was Millie, was heard saying "she's got a gun" and "my wife, I told her I wanted a divorce" before the call ended. 

Police were at the door of the couple’s home when they heard two gunshots.

When authorities entered the home, they found Millie alive with a gunshot wound to the back of the head and Deborah with a gunshot wound to the forehead.

There was also a 9mm gun next to Deborah.

Police believe she shot Millie in the back of the head before turning the gun on herself.

Autopsies have been conducted, but the results are still pending.

The Texas Rangers are assisting in the investigation.

According to the Burnet County Sheriff's Office, where Millie worked, her funeral is for for Friday, April 21, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church.

Deborah's funeral arrangements have not yet been released.
