The sheriff in Kaufman County, Texas, confirms that the county district attorney and his wife were shot and killed.
Sheriff David Byrnes told reporters today that authorities found Mike McLelland and his wife shot at their home last night.
Authorities have given no motive for the attack in their home just outside the town of Forney, about 20 miles from Dallas. But it comes two months after an assistant district attorney was shot and killed in a parking lot near his office. No arrests had been made in the killing of assistant prosecutor Mark Hasse (HA'-see).
Investigators are trying to determine of the shootings are connected.
The mayor of a nearby community says, "Everybody's a little on edge and a little shocked" by the shootings.
