Two dead in apparent Prosper murder-suicide

Two people were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide Thursday in Prosper.

Sources tell FOX4 the wife, Bridget O’Halloran, killed her husband before calling police and then turning the gun on herself.

Police said they responded to a 911 call for suspicious activity at a home in the 1600 block of Hidden Glen Court just before 4:30 a.m. Thursday. When they went inside the home, police found two dead bodies – Bridge and Dennis O’Halloran.

Police said there were no indications of forced entry into the residence. Sources also told FOX4 there was a note left behind in the home by Bridget.

"We would like to reassure our residents this is not an everyday occurrence. This is an unfortunate, unfortunate occurrence that we are dealing with here accordingly,” said Prosper PD Sgt. Bryan Golden. “We would also like to tell the residents that there is no further need for them to be alarmed."

There have been no previous domestic violence calls to the home, police said.

The crime scene will remain intact until the medical examiner’s office and can confirm what police believe happened.
