Two people are dead after a murder-suicide in the parking lot of the Oaks of Denton apartment complex, located across the street from UNT, on Tuesday morning.

Denton Police Community Resource Officer Orlando Hinojosa said police received a call about shots fired in the 400 block of Bernard Street at about 9 a.m.

Police found one woman shot inside a car, a man shot in the lane next to the car, and a handgun.
“It appears he shot her, and then himself,” Hinojosa said.

The male victim, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. The female victim, 41-year-old Ericka Santibanez, was taken to Denton Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead at 10:10 a.m.

Hinojosa said police are sure the murder-suicide is an isolated incident. Neither of the victims were UNT students.
