"HOLLY SPRINGS, NC — Two people were found dead Monday inside a home in Holly Springs in a murder-suicide, authorities said.
"Holly Springs Police Chief John Herring said investigators found the bodies of a married couple, Robert and Amber Seymore, both 38, in the home at 223 Hidden Stream Drive.
"Investigators said three children—ages 2, 6 and 8—live at the address. The 2-year-old was home at the time of the shooting. A visiting in-law was dropping the older children off at school and returned to discover the bodies, Herring said.
"`She called the police department and ran over to the neighbor's house,` he said. Police cordoned off that home to keep media away.
"Investigators think the shootings happened after a domestic dispute between the couple about 9 a.m.
"One neighbor [said] that she had invited the wife to a Bible study about two weeks ago. The wife said she couldn't go but asked the group for prayers, according to the neighbor.
"Another neighbor said the husband had worked in law enforcement.
"The single-family home is in a new subdivision called WoodCreek, where listed homes sell from $300,000 to $500,000."
