A husband and wife were found dead in the bedroom of their Chatsworth townhouse on Monday morning, and police are investigating the case as a suspected murder-suicide.
Officers were called to the residence in the 10400 block of Canoga Avenue just after 7 a.m., according to Officer Tony Im with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.
When police arrived, they found a man and woman dead, Im said. Both had been shot.
A firearm was recovered in the bedroom where the two were found deceased, according to LAPD Detective Dave Peteque.
Police initially described the married couple as being in their 50s, but Peteque later said the man was 73 and the woman was 67.
Peteque did not identify them, telling KTLA that investigators are still trying to get in contact with relatives.
A motive has not yet been determined.
No other details about the incident were immediately released.
