Man, Woman, Dog Dead In Condo Shooting

"CLOVIS, CA — The bodies of two adults were found Friday in a Clovis condominium, and police are investigating their deaths as an apparent murder/suicide.

"Clovis police said a despondent man made a 911 call just after 5 p.m. and claimed he had just shot a family member and was preparing to shoot himself. Sgt. Vince Weibert said the man told the 911 dispatcher that he had shot his wife and dog.

"Dozens of police vehicles closed off the main entrance to the Tollhouse Village condominiums on Tollhouse Lane near Fowler Avenue. Some of the armor-clad officers wielded a riot shield and high-powered rifles, and one carried a massive metal battering ram. Neighbors assembled behind yellow tape a few hundred feet from the crime scene.

"Sgt. Jim Koch said that officers entered the home after a wait of over two hours and found the two dead adults. Both had been shot.

"Police did not immediately release the names of the two dead people pending notification of family and the continuing investigation. Saturday afternoon, Sgt. Jim Koch said an autopsy is pending and said the preliminary investigation indicates this was a murder-suicide."
