A man and his wife were killed in the parking lot of a shopping center in Stevenson Ranch in an apparent murder-suicide, homicide detectives said Monday.

The shooting occurred just before 9 p.m. Sunday in the 24900 block of Pico Canyon Road, said Deputy Crystal Hernandez of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

“Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are confirming that the victims…were married and died in an apparent murder-suicide,” Hernandez said.

“Evidence at the location indicates the couple exited the FedEx store together. The husband shot his wife and then himself. The weapon was recovered at the scene,” she said.

“The circumstances preceding the incident are still under investigation,” Hernandez said.

The names of the couple were withheld pending family notification.
