Police are looking for the gunman who shot a man and woman to death this morning at an Anaheim apartment complex.

Officers found the pair with gunshot wounds shortly after the 5:50 a.m. shooting in the 200 block of South Rio Vista Street, near Lincoln Avenue, said Sgt. Michael Bustamante of the Anaheim Police Department.

The woman, who appeared to be in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene and the man, who police believe may have been her boyfriend, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A 5-year-old boy, who lived in one of the apartment units with the woman, was missing after police arrived, leading investigators to believe the incident may have been triggered by a custody battle.
