A man and woman who lived on the same street in a Huntington Beach townhome complex were found shot to death Friday, in what police suspect was a murder-suicide.

Police were called at 8:07 a.m. to the 4100 block of Aladdin Drive, said Huntington Beach police Lt. Tim Martin. The bodies of the “elderly” man and woman were found in a driveway of  garages of the townhome complex, Martin said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, Martin said. Their names and ages were not immediately released.

“They both live on that street, they’re neighbors,” he said. “That’s all we know of their relationship, and we do believe it was a murder suicide.”
