BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Bristol police say a husband and wife have been found dead of gunshot wounds in an apparent murder-suicide, and their three young children were in the home at the time but weren’t harmed.
Authorities responded to a report of a shooting at the couple’s home Wednesday morning and found 26-year-old Alexander Ryng and 27-year-old Kyla Ryng dead inside.
Police say the Ryngs’ three children, ages 4, 3 and 20 months, also were in the home and are now staying with relatives.
Investigators haven’t released a motive for the killings. State court records show Kyla Ryng filed for divorce on May 30.
Police say their preliminary investigation indicated that the deaths may have been a murder-suicide.
