Possible Murder-Suicide in Kendall: Couple Found Dead After Kids Leave for School
Police are investigating a double shooting this morning in Kendall that left a couple dead inside their home. While the investigation is on-going, detectives believe that the incident may have been a double shooting. Two children resided with the couple in the home, but had left for school earlier that morning and have been accounted for in class.
No details have been released of how the inhabitants were related other than that the two victims were in a relationship. Their identities are also still under wraps.
Police arrived at the apartment along Southwest 122nd Avenue shortly after gunshots were reported after 8 a.m. this morning, reports WSVN. Once inside, the police found both adults dead.
They believe that the man shot and killed the woman before turning the gun on himself.
"According to investigators, at this point, the preliminary investigation is leaning towards a domestic situation, possibly a murder-suicide," Miami-Dade Police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta tells WSVN. "Of course, it's to early to confirm any of that. We're allowing crime scene now to process the scene, and we'll have to wait for the medical examiner's office to give the final word as far as cause of death."
