"SPRINGFIELD, MA — Police identified the two people killed in a murder/suicide on Eddy Street as Ramonita Colon and Cristobal Gonzalez.
"The bodies of Colon and Gonzalez were found in a bedroom at 16 Eddy St. Monday morning after police went there to conduct a well-being check after a daughter had been unable to reach her parents over the weekend.
"Investigators believe Gonzalez shot Colon and then turned the gun on himself, said Springfield Police spokesman John Delaney.
"Delaney said the state Medical Examiner is scheduled to perform an autopsy shortly.
"The deaths occurred sometime over the weekend, Delaney said.
"The first officers arriving on scene found no activity at the house and no one answered the door, Delaney said. The officers could hear music coming from inside the home.
"They gained entry by climbing through a window and found the couple dead in the bedroom, he said."
