VALLEJO — Vallejo police say a man and woman found dead inside an apartment were fatally shot in an apparent murder-suicide.
Lt. Jim O’Connell says officers went to the apartment Sunday morning after family members asked police to check on the woman who lived there because they had not heard from her for several days.
Officials say while officers were responding, police received reports from people who reported hearing a gunshot at the apartment. Inside they found the bodies of a man and woman in their early 50s. Their identities have not been released.
Detectives are investigating what triggered their deaths, but O’Connell says, “There’s every indication it was a murder-suicide.”
The Vallejo Times-Herald reports there’s no record of domestic violence or immediate evidence of drugs involved in the incident.
