2 found dead after shooting in Kansas City; police trying to determine what unfolded 

Update: Police on Monday identified the victims and described the shooting as a murder-suicide. That story is posted here.

Two people were found fatally shot Sunday night in a residence in Kansas City, according to police.

Officers responded to the shooting about 8:15 p.m. in the 400 block of Oakley Avenue, where they found a man and a woman fatally shot, according to Sgt. Jake Becchina, a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department. The two people have not been identified.

Police were not searching for any suspects, Becchina said.

Detectives and crime scene technicians would work through the night to figure out what unfolded, Becchina said. Investigators were interviewing neighbors and trying to determine the relationship of the man and the woman, he said.

The shooting was the second reported Sunday in Kansas City. Earlier in the day, another shooting at an apartment complex in the 4300 block of Northern Avenue left a man in critical condition.
