An 18-year-old female was killed in an attempted murder-suicide on Saturday.

According to San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers, at about 6:35 p.m. Saturday, deputies responded to a shooting call at an address in the 6000 block of FM 1725.

Officers found a white female, identified as Jesslyn Draper, deceased in the yard from a gunshot wound, and a white male, identified as Dylan Morse, 25, was found in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head, Capers said.

Reports indicate that Morse is believed to have shot Draper and then turned the gun on himself; Capers said Morse was transported by medical helicopter to a local trauma center for treatment.

His condition is not being released at this time.

Investigators have determined that there currently is no danger to the public as this was an isolated incident between the suspect and victim.

Capers said this is an ongoing investigation and more information will be available later.
