Patrol officers responded to a discharging firearms call at the above location.  When officers arrived, neighbors stated they believed the gunshots had come from inside the residence.  The officers did not get an answer at the door and found the front door unlocked.  Upon opening the door, they found the male lying inside the residence with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.  The female victim was found lying in the kitchen, having suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
