Police on Monday night responded to calls about gunfire heard in a neighborhood on the city's southeast side. Officers later located a man shot to death inside a home.

Officer Don Martin said a witness told police that a man holding a gun was seen running from the location.

Martin said a wounded man found on the front porch was hospitalized Tuesday in critical condition. Police didn't immediately release the condition of a woman who was also found shot in the home and transported to a Tyler hospital.

Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the shootings.

Names of the victims weren't immediately released.
