Detectives who arrived at the Irving house also found the family’s two dogs shot to death.

According to the police: During a press conference one of the female victims called 911 for help that same morning, and the caller seemed to be pretending she was on the phone with her brother.

That call came in at around 11:15am and lasted less than a minute.

The person of the call was stressed, Reeves said of the caller. “Was talking in a very low volume. Was trying to talk in a code to the dispatcher, and they weren’t necessarily picking up on that conversation that was being said. They could understand they said something about a brother, and they were calling 911. So they just went ahead and did their task of trying to get someone out there very quickly.”

When the officers arrived, the suspect James Olivares was alive and called out from inside the home, demanding a negotiator. Not long after that, police heard at least one gunshot as Olivares took his own life.
