LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Two people have been found dead of gunshot wounds inside a home in Georgia’s Gwinnett County.

Police spokesman David Smith says officers responded shortly after noon Saturday and found the bodies of a man and a woman in the Lawrenceville area.

Smith says a family member came to the home to check on the residents but couldn’t make contact.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the relative looked through a back door and saw the middle-aged man dead of a gunshot wound and called 911. When officers arrived, Smith says they found an elderly woman also shot dead.

The incident is believed to be domestic. Smith says there’s a history of domestic-related calls at the home.

The names of the deceased have not been released.
