LONG VIEW, N.C. (AP) - Police are investigating why a couple was found dead inside an apartment in a Catawba County town.

Multiple media organizations report that the deaths early Sunday in a Long View apartment have led investigators to say they believe it was a murder suicide.

Authorities responded to a report of an assault and shooting around 1 a.m. and found Marquis Lineberger and Shanice Williams dead inside one apartment. A young child also in the residence wasn’t hurt.

Police said they recovered a handgun and hope to release more details about the case on Monday.
