A 41-year-old man and his 17-year-old daughter were found shot to death inside their Riverside home, police said today.

Officers discovered the bodies of Rigoberto Villavicencio and his daughter Noelin about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 5100 block of Bushnell Avenue near Mitchell Avenue, said Det. Dave Smith of the Riverside Police Department.

Villavicencio and his daughter were pronounced dead at the scene. Police had gone to the house after a family member called them. Villavicencio's wife and three of their children were at the home when officers arrived.

“A murder-suicide is not out of the question at this point,” Smith said.
