OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) - Two people are dead after an apparent murder-suicide.

Ocala Police are on the scene at Berkeley Point Apartments, where they found two people dead from apparent gunshot wounds and four children inside the home.

Police say they arrived to the scene a little after 1 p.m. to an apparent murder-suicide. The victims are a 34-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman, however, their identities have yet to be released.

The victims were found in the bedroom of the apartment.

“The female and males relationship right now is still unknown," said OPD’s public information officer Corie Byrd. "We know that one of the children that was present was theirs together so they had a previous intimate relationship or in some type of relationship but we don’t know right now if they were still together.”

Four children were in the apartment at the time of the incident, the oldest was five-years-old. Police believe that the children did not witness the shooting but did see some of the aftermath.

This is the second shooting officers have responded to this week.

This is a developing story and we will have updates as they become available.
