"SAUSALITO, CA — Two bodies were discovered inside a Sausalito residence early Sunday after police responded to reports of gunfire in the neighborhood.
"The bodies were found at about 2:45 a.m. inside 173 San Carlos Ave., a two-story home over a garage in the hills near Spencer Avenue. The residence has a front driveway on San Carlos Avenue and a rear staircase leading up to Santa Rosa Avenue.
"The police department said it sent officers to the home after receiving a report of gunshots at 2:38 a.m., but another resident across the street said she heard several sharp bursts at 2:15 a.m. She said she did not call police because she thought the sound might have been firecrackers.
"A neighbor who lives behind the residence, on the Santa Rosa Avenue side, said she heard a "bang" two to three times.
"`I looked around and saw nothing out of the window,` she said.
"Sausalito police declined to release details about the two people or their injuries, but described the event as an `isolated incident.` Police Chief Jennifer Tejada said there is nothing to indicate the general public is at risk but declined to elaborate with the investigation in progress.
"There was no sign of a break-in at the home, she said.
"Two pets, a cat and a dog, were inside the home when police went inside. The animals were turned over to the Marin Humane Society.
"Marin County sheriff's detectives, Central Marin police and a coroner's investigator were assisting in the inquiry.
"The coroner's office did not release the names of the victims pending confirmation and notification of family members."
