MANSFIELD, Texas — Two people are dead on the day before Thanksgiving after a "barricaded person" situation unfolded in Mansfield.

Mansfield police said it all began Wednesday morning when officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Fannin Lane around 11:30 for a call of a person with a weapon.

When they got there, police said officers found a woman dead in a neighbor's garage. Police said it appeared she had been shot. 

Officers then zeroed in on a nearby home, but when they approached the house, police said officers heard what sounded like gunshots coming from inside. Police said the situation then turned into a barricaded suspect, and officers worked to obtain a search warrant. When they got inside, however, police said they found a man dead.

No names for the two people involved, or their relation to each other, were released.

Little other information is known right now, but police said it remains an "active investigation" as they work to find out exactly what happened.
