January 1, 2012 |  2:47 pm

Four people are dead after an early morning shooting in Coronado, possibly from a murder-suicide, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

"Although it is early in the investigation, we do not believe there are any outstanding suspects," said Sheriff's Department Lt. Larry Nesbit.

Two of the victims appear to be military personnel, according to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is assisting in the investigation.

Coronado police responded to a call about shots fired around 2:30 a.m. Sunday in an apartment. The Sheriff's Department SWAT squad arrived later and found one body in the doorway, Nesbit said.

A robotic device was used to search the apartment, where three more bodies were found, Nesbit said. The victims include three men and a woman, he said.
