NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a mother and her 10-year-old daughter were found dead in their Bronx apartment, near the woman’s longtime boyfriend who had a gunshot wound to his head.

Police say they were called to the Belmont neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.

The wounded 32-year-old boyfriend is in critical condition at St. Barnabas Hospital.

The medical examiner is to determine the cause of death for the mother and daughter, since police say there were no outward signs of trauma.

Police identified the girl as Heaven Ross and her 34-year-old mother as Linda Manigault. Police say her 13-year-old son was also in the apartment, unharmed.

The boyfriend’s name was not released.

Authorities provided no other details.
