YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Police are investigating a shooting as a murder-suicide after a man and a woman were found dead early Thursday morning.
Police found the two at a home in the 1600 block of Everett Avenue around 1:45 a.m. The 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman both had gunshot wounds.
Youngstown police confirmed that a family member discovered the bodies and called police. According to a 911 call, that caller told dispatchers that the man shot his girlfriend who was pregnant and himself.
Boardman Dispatch: “Caller’s on the line saying the son shot himself and his girlfriend.”
