A married couple was found dead of apparent gunshot wounds in a Huntington Beach residence, authorities said Tuesday.
Officers were sent to the 600 block of Eighth Street about 7:45 p.m. Monday to conduct a welfare check on the pair, and found the bodies of the 56-year-old man and the 55-year-old woman, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department.
Their names were withheld, pending notification of their relatives.
“During the preliminary investigation, detectives have no reason to believe there is a threat to the community or an outstanding suspect(s),” police said Tuesday. “Because this is an ongoing investigation, no further details will be released at this time.”
Anyone with more information on the case was urged to call detectives at 714-536-5973, or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS.
