    Police identify man (James Benjamin Olivares, 45), two women (Brandy Evett Olivares, 45), (Sicilian Italease Ire Williams, 18) who died in apparent double murder-suicide in Irving

    IRVING ' Police have identified the man and two women who were found dead Tuesday in a home in Irving in what police said was a double murder-suicide.

    The victims, 45-year-old Brandy Evett Olivares and 18-year-old Sicilian Italease Ire Williams, were fatally shot, authorities say. The third person, 45-year-old James Benjamin Olivares, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    James and Brandy Olivares were married, and Williams was James Olivares' stepdaughter, Irving police spokesman Robert Reeves said. The motive for the shooting is still unknown.

    Officers had been called about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday to the home in the 400 block of Renaissance Lane after a caller requested a welfare check on a person she identified as her brother, police initially said.

    Police said Thursday that the woman who called was trying to talk to police without the suspect knowing she was on the phone with authorities. The call came from inside the house, police said, and it is unclear who called.

    When officers arrived, they saw a man outside who ran back into the house when he spotted the officers, police said.

    Officers knocked on the front door and heard a man inside yell at officers to call a negotiator, police said. He then fired at least one shot from a handgun, police said.

    Officers then forced their way into the home and found the bodies.

    The family has lived in Irving since 2018 and the couple has been married since 2010, police said. Reeves said Thursday that police are aware of a Facebook status posted by James saying he was 'sorry' at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    The case is being investigated as a domestic violence incident, police confirmed Tuesday.

    Reeves said Tuesday that during the pandemic, tensions are likely to run high as people continue to stay at home. October is domestic violence awareness month, and Reeves encouraged anyone experiencing domestic violence at home to contact the Irving Family Advocacy Center.

    'If you know someone who is being abused, to be that advocate may save their lives,' Reeves said.

    Reeves said there was no prior history of calls to the home.

    Residents said the neighborhood is usually quiet. They said that made the gunshots and subsequent explosion Tuesday afternoon more jarring.

    'It doesn't hit you until it hits you right next door,' said Richard Alvarado, who lives across the street.

    One neighbor said they occasionally saw the man and one of the two women working out in the garage. Another neighbor said the man usually walked around the neighborhood with his two dogs.

    Joanne Ellis, 73, has lived down the block in an adjacent neighborhood for 53 years. Upon hearing the explosion, she said she immediately ran outside.

    'People know each other and they help out with each other," Ellis said. 'It's real neighborly.'

    He posted "I'm sorry" the same day. And if the time is right, he posted it 15 minutes after police were called....creepy.

    Edit: derp, I see that's in the article.
