Blood seen coming from a doorway at a home in San Bernardino led police to two dead bodies Tuesday.
Officers were called to a home in the 1100 block of North Hancock Street (map) about 12:30 p.m., San Bernardino Police Department Lt. Rich Lawhead said.
An officer forced entry into a locked bedroom and found the bodies of two men suffering from gunshot wounds, according to a news release from police.
A handgun was located near one of the men.
One of the men was identified as 49-year-old landlord Ephraim Lincoln of Fontana, police said.
The second man, Lincoln’s tenant, remained unidentified. He was described only as a 38-year-old resident of San Bernardino.
Police believed the incident was a murder-suicide in which Lincoln killed his tenant before shooting himself, the release stated.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective Al Tello at 909-384-5747 or Sgt. Gary Robertson at 909-841-5361.
