A Burnet County Sheriff's Office employee died Friday morning in what officials believe may have been a murder-suicide at a Lampasas home.

Millie Chance, 24, worked in the Burnet County Jail. She died Friday morning at Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, where she had been airlifted the previous day.

Lampasas police officers had responded just before noon Thursday to a disturbance call at a residence at 702 W. North Ave. after a woman called 911 to ask for help, but the call was disconnected. When officers arrived, they knocked on the door but got no answer. Then, they heard two noises that appeared to be gunshots coming from inside the house.

Officers forced entry into the home and found Deborah Chance, 47, dead at the scene from an apparent gunshot wound. Millie Chance was still alive, but had what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head. A post on the Burnet County Sheriff's Office Facebook page on Friday announced Millie Chance's death.
