(WHDH) β€” Five children were found alone in their home on Christmas morning after their parents died in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities said.

Deputies responding to a home on Daun Street in Houston, Texas, discovered an apparent murder-suicide involving a husband and wife, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The victims, who the sheriff’s office identified as 45-year-old Arsenio Gonzalez and 42-year-old Maria Gonzalez, were found dead on the lawn. The children, ages 7 to 16, were found unharmed inside the home.

β€œThe wife had signs of blunt trauma and the husband appeared to have a self-inflected gunshot wound,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Investigators noted that the couple had just returned home from a family Christmas function when the assault and shooting occurred.

Children Protective Services is assisting with placing the children with family.

An investigation remains ongoing.
