Officers in League City, Texas, responding to a call about ‘multiple gunshots’ fired on Thursday arrived to find Dudley Bernard, 40, standing outside his home near the body of his 42-year-old wife Chantelle.

Authorities said the couple had been inside celebrating Thanksgiving with their two young sons prior to the shooting. Video obtained by ABC13 showed a family member crying outside the home as an officer questioned Bernard.

No additional details about the incident have been released.

Bernard was arrested and is being held on $200,000 bond, according to jail records.

Both the suspect and victim had worked with CBP since 2008, a spokeswoman for the federal agency said in a statement.
