2 dead in apparent murder-suicide in Simi Valley

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Police say two people are dead in what appears to be a murder-suicide inside a Simi Valley home.

Cmdr. David Livingstone said officers found a dead woman and a seriously injured man when they were called to the home in a cul-de-sac Saturday afternoon. The man later died at a hospital.

Livingstone said a gun was found at the scene, and that the man probably shot himself after killing the woman.

He said four young children who lived in the home were placed in child protective custody.

Neighbors told KNBC-TV the couple moved to the neighborhood from Ohio about a year ago.
