Early Monday morning police were called to the 2000 block of Evergreen, after a man living in the area reported a stabbing.

"He said that he had heard a lot of commotion and when he checked on the situation and banged on the door and eventually was able to get inside and found two victims that had been stabbed," Jillian Garza with the Bryan Police Department said.

Mary Neeley, 44, was pronounced dead at the scene. Maxie Taylor, 61, received non-life threatening stab wounds and was taken to St. Joseph for treatment.

"She was a nice neighbor everybody loved her we're surprised it happened to her," a Bryan resident said.

Police have not released a motive for the stabbings.

"The whole neighborhood's concerned about them, concerned about what happened and we just hope they find who did it to them," a Bryan resident said.

The investigation is on-going as police interview witnesses and search for a reason behind the crime.

This murder makes three so far in Bryan this year.
