FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) - Faribault police say investigators believe the deaths of a 33-year-old man and a girl were a murder-suicide.

Authorities discovered the bodies inside a home Sunday after someone reported seeing the man lying in the entryway.

Police on Monday identified the man as Ryan Perrizo, who lived at the home. Authorities are waiting for an autopsy to confirm the girl’s identity.

According to Faribault police, both the man and the girl were shot. A handgun was found next to Perrizo’s body.

Investigators are still trying to determine how Perrizo and the girl were related. Their bodies were sent to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office for autopsies.
