Investigators said they were not yet certain of a motive in the murder-suicide, but they believe the couple's relationship was coming to an end. Police had been called to the home previously, but not for domestic violence. Investigators did not elaborate on the nature of the runs.

According to police, a handgun believed to have come from the home was used to carry out the shootings.

The victims names have not yet been released, but police said the woman was 36 and the man was 37 years old.
