Two people are dead following what police are calling a murder-suicide at a home in Gainesville on Saturday.

According to the Hall County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to the home on the 2300 block of Thompson Mill Road just before midnight on Saturday, after receiving reports of a suicidal man inside.

A SWAT team was also called to the home to try to make contact to those inside. When no one replied, a robot was sent in, which later discovered a body on the floor. After a larger search, the body of another person was located.

The sheriff's office says 29 year-old Cameron Clark Martin told family members he was feeling suicidal. His father, 56 year-old Paul Cowan Martin, went to the resident to check on him and was shot. 

Cameron then turned the gun on himself.

The case is still under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff's Office, Criminal Investigations Division.
