Beaumont Police investigating double homicide
Beaumont Police were called about 4 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, to the 2500 block of Campbell in reference to reported shots fired. When officers arrived, they found a white male deceased and a white female mortally wounded inside a vehicle that was in the driveway of 2530 Campbell. Emergency service responders were summoned to treat the injured woman, but she died before paramedics could arrive at the scene. Both victims appeared to have suffered from multiple gunshot wounds, officials from the Beaumont Police Department report.
Officers secured the scene and searched for witnesses. K-9 Officers responded to the scene and they performed a lengthy track in the hopes of locating a possible suspect. This effort was unsuccessful.
Both victims were transported to the Jefferson County Morgue and are awaiting autopsies that were ordered by Judge Ken Dollinger.
Detectives have been able to identify the female victim, stated BPD Officer Rob Flores, but are still working to identify the male victim.
“We are working this case as a capital murder,” he said. “These are the first murders to occur in the city this year.”
