A man and a woman were found dead inside an apartment Sunday morning after officers were called to check on their welfare, Vallejo police said.
A family member called police at 9:23 a.m. to ask for the officers to check on a resident who lived in an apartment unit at 400 Ebbetts Pass Road, in North Vallejo. The reasons why the family member called were not immediately known.
While officers were responding to the location, police received calls from witnesses who said they heard a gunshot from the apartment, police said.
The witnesses forced entry into the apartment and found both man and woman dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Responding officers then secured the scene upon their arrival. The investigation was still ongoing as of Sunday afternoon at the beige two-story, multi-unit building.
The identifications of both people were withheld pending notification of next of kin.
It was also not immediately clear if they were both residents of the apartment unit.
Vallejo police said the circumstances around the deaths are suspicious, and they are awaiting for the autopsy examination results to determine if the deaths were the result of a double homicide, or a murder suicide.
Anyone with information related to this crime is requested to contact Detective Sean Kenney or Detective Fabio Rodriguez at 1 (800) 488-9383.
