Deputies were called to an apartment in North Tampa around 10:15 a.m. today after a maintenance worker at the apartment complex conducted a welfare check on an apartment and discovered two bodies inside.
Deputies arrived at the apartment at 14022 Halstead Court, No. 424, and found the victims, a husband and wife, in the bedroom. Detectives have determined this is a murder-suicide. Next of kin has not been notified. Their identities are not expected to be released today.
The murder-suicide is believed to have occurred about two weeks ago.
Preliminary investigation shows the husband shot his wife, then turned the pistol on himself.
The bodies were removed by the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office for autopsies.
