Police responding Saturday to reports of domestic violence discovered a man and woman with gunshot wounds at a home in Long Beach.

The man died at the scene. The woman died a short time later at a hospital.

Investigators recovered a weapon and said they were treating it as a murder-suicide.

Coroner’s Deputy Chief Ed Winter said Monday that 53-year-old Wayne Havron’s cause of death was suicide. Winter said Havron’s wife, whose identity was not released, was killed in a homicide.
