"Marin County sheriff's detectives, who were investigating the shooting death of a resident found in the backyard of 154 Carlotta Circle about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, discovered the body of a resident next door at 152 Carlotta in his yard Thursday morning.
"A rifle was found alongside the body at 152 Carlotta.
"Sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman said events that unfolded at 152 and 154 Carlotta Circle were unclear, but added there is a `high probability` the case involved a murder/suicide. The two were apparently neighbors.
"`At this point, there is no search for a suspect,` Pittman said. `We have no information to believe we have any suspect at large or that the community is in danger.`
"Pittman said he had no information on the relationship of the two men, or whether there had been issues involving the pair. `I'm unaware of any ongoing dispute between them,` he said. Identities of the two were not released.
"`We're trying to figure out what we have here,` Pittman added."
