A middle-school teacher from Dallas has been apprehended and charged with capital murder after two men were found dead in Fort Worth, Texas.

A statement released by the Fort Worth police department indicated that Cary Joseph Heath was taken into custody and charged with capital murder on Monday at Permenter Middle School, where he was a first-year teacher after he served 13 years in the Air Force.

Authorities haven’t revealed much information on the killings, which occurred at approximately 4 a.m. on Sunday. Police arrived on the scene and discovered two men dead in the driveway of a residence. Officials have not released the identities of the victims, and a motive is still unclear.

The murdered men were Heath’s neighbors, according to KXAS.

“From my understanding, the guy had an assault rifle. From the looks of it, due to the shell casings, he unloaded the whole clip and killed two of the people who lived next door,” said resident Jordan Milner, who lived across the street from the victims.

According to the Star-Telegram, Heath’s profile stated, “I am excited to be at Permenter to provide structure and discipline for your student. My goal as an educator is to provide a quality education while focusing on success in our global marketplace.”

Heath’s bond has been established at $1 million.
