RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. (AP) - Orange County sheriff’s officials say the death of a man and his three-year-old son may have been a murder-suicide stemming from a domestic dispute.

Lt. Jeff Hallock says deputies were sent to a home in the Trabuco Canyon area on Wednesday following a 911 hang-up call.

Hallock says deputies determined there had been a dispute between a man and a woman at the home.

The woman was interviewed by investigators but the man refused to come outside.

Hallock says a SWAT team forcefully entered the home and found the 41-year-old man and the child dead inside.

Officials say the incident is being investigated as a murder-suicide.
