Kevin Thorpe Identified As Gunman In Murder-Suicide

The preliminary investigation suggests the boyfriend shot his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself, according two law enforcement officials.

On Saturday afternoon, McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara identified the gunman as Kevin Thorpe and confirmed the couple had a history of domestic violence. He said Thorpe bonded out of jail around noon Friday on two counts of harassment, one count of malicious mischief and one count of marijuana possession.

The Texas Rangers and McLennan County Sheriff's Office are assisting Bruceville-Eddy Police with the investigation.
