A 43-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man are dead in what Merrillville police are investigating as a murder-suicide, according to a release.
Officers were called around 7:30 a.m. to the red brick home in the 5800 block of McKinley Street for a report of a person with a gunshot wound, Commander Jeff Rice said.
When police arrived, they found two people with gunshot wounds, a release said.
Police are investigating the incident as a possible murder-suicide, Rice said.
A release from the Lake County Coroner’s office Wednesday identified the victims as Sheretha Stevens, 43, and Ivory Johnson Jr., 24.
Two juvenile family members were taken to a local hospital for evaluation, the release said.
There is no danger to the public, Rice said.
No further information was immediately available.
