CROWNSVILLE, Md. -- An FBI agent and his estranged wife were killed in Crownsville on Wednesday morning in what Anne Arundel County police say was a murder-suicide on the day the two were expected back in divorce court.

Officers responded to a report of a domestic assault in progress in the 500 block of Arundel Boulevard at 8:05 a.m. Police said the caller had dialed 911 on behalf of another woman who "was being threatened by her recently estranged husband."

Upon arriving at the home, officers found a man and a woman outside a home who had both been stabbed, the department said, adding that the man also had what looked to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Donna Fisher, 54, of Crownsville and FBI Special Agent David Raynor, 52, of Annapolis, were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel.

FBI spokesman Dave Fitz said Raynor had been a special agent with the bureau since 1996, having been stationed at the Baltimore field office since 2003. He declined to comment on what his duties at the bureau were.

Fisher filed for divorce in March 2017, online court records show, and the two appeared in an Annapolis courtroom Tuesday morning. Proceedings were originally scheduled to continue through Thursday.

Kenneth Heist, who lives on the same block as Fisher, said the two had two children.

Police did not provide any additional information on what sparked the dispute. The department said the bodies of Raynor and Fisher have been taken to the chief medical examiner's office for autopsies.
