HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are investigating after a woman was found dead and her husband, an off-duty Harris County deputy was shot.

According to authorities, the deputy called police around 3 a.m. Sunday and said there was an accidental shooting on Briscoe Street.

Police say the woman and the deputy were shot. The deputy was shot in the leg. Investigators say they don't know who shot who, or what led up to the shooting.

A neighbor in the area says he woke up around 3 a.m. to the sound of loud noises.

"I heard a loud noise which, now that I think about it, could have possibly been a gunshot," said Timothy Choice.

He was not the only one. As the sun came up, more neighbors came out.

"It's sad for anyone to lose their life for whatever the reason is. It's really sad because this is a community that we try to stay close, you know." said neighbor Dee Shanklin.

Police say there was an elderly man inside the home at the time, but he told investigators he did not hear anything. Investigators are not looking for any suspects.
