    San Diego police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in Linda Vista. Investigators say a man and a woman in their 70s were found dead inside a home with gunshot wounds. NBC 7’s Vanessa Herrera reports.

     A man and woman are dead after police got an alarming call from Linda Vista Monday morning.

    A man called 911, threatening to kill his wife and commit suicide, San Diego Police Lt. Mike Hastings says.

    When officers got to the home in the 2300 block of W. Jewett Street around 10:20 a.m., they found the back door open.

    Inside, they discovered a man and a woman – possibly in their 70s – dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

    Hastings says a handgun was found at the scene, and investigators believe this to be a murder-suicide.

    "I'm really surprised," said neighbor Galen Grover. "This is the first time anything like that has ever happened in this neighborhood. I've been here 47 or 48 years or something like that, but this has never happened. Not in this neighborhood."

    Officials from the Medical Examiner’s Office later arrived to identify the bodies.
