CEDAR PARK (KJCE) -- A weekend shooting in Cedar Park that left two men dead and a woman critically injured appears to be a murder-suicide, police say.

Cedar Park Police continue to investigate the shooting, which happened around 6:45 p.m. Saturday in the 700 block of Dogwood Trail. Upon arrival at the scene, officers found 45-year old John Michael Garcia shot to death, and 47-year old Elijah Jared Stone dead from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

23-year old Hailey Michelle Reyes sustained critical gunshot injuries in the shooting; she was transported to St. David's Round Rock where she remains on life support. Police say Reyes is "likely to be" a second victim in the homicide.

Police say Stone has been identified as a long-time estranged brother of Garcia.

Officials say there is no ongoing threat to the public, and that this appears to be an isolated incident.
