It happened just before noon Wednesday outside a home near the intersection of Main and Houston streets.

The Coppell Police Department said it got 911 calls from neighbors who said they saw a man running away after shooting a woman.

The woman was already dead by the time officers arrived. She has been identified as 21-year-old Caitlin Rogers.

The officers later found the man still in the area with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  He was taken to the hospital, where he later died. He has been identified as 21-year-old Nicholas Twining.

Police said Rogers and Twining were former college roommates.

Nearby Wilson Elementary School was placed in lockout mode because of the threat. The school was later given the all-clear.
