Brother, sister killed in apparent Westminster murder-suicide, police say
Westminster police responded to the 6100 block of Navajo Road late Thursday after a caller reported hearing what sounded like five to six gunshots.
Responding officers in the front yard of a home were met by a woman, who told them her son had just killed her daughter.
Officers went inside to rescue the victim but found a woman dead in a hallway, the victim of a gunshot. Officers then found the body of a man in the backyard with a handgun nearby.
An argument had erupted between the siblings, who lived with their mother at the home, authorities said.
Westminster police believe the deaths were a murder-suicide, but the investigation is still in the early stages.
Detectives are not releasing the names of the deceased until their relatives have been notified, officials said.
