Woman and Companion Shot Dead in Front Yard with 3- and 5-Year-Olds Inside

The father-ex-husband, of course, kills himself later. And the violence was no news to police:

Grand Prairie police said Jenea James had called once Saturday morning, and again that night, to say that her ex-husband, Dashun Atkins, was calling to harass her, according to a police statement.

After the first call, she declined to press charges but was given information on how to get a restraining order. After the second call, a police officer called the ex-husband and told him to stop calling James.

Residents reported hearing gunshots after 2 a.m. Sunday, around three hours after James called police a second time. Officers found James, 37, lying in the front yard, and 41-year-old James Doyle lying nearby, the statement said.

James’ two children, ages three and five, were in the house at the time of the killings, but were not physically injured. It’s unclear if they witnessed the murders. Police are working to relocate them with other members.

Police found Atkins, 39, dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home hours later, the statement said.

…Besides the calls from James, police said they also received a call shortly before midnight Saturday from someone claiming to be a relative of Atkins. That relative told police that Atkins “indicated he got into an argument with his ex-wife, and was saying goodbye,” the statement said.

Officers then went to Atkins’ apartment and spoke to him, but he “made no indication that he intended to harm himself, or anyone else.”
