PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A woman picking up her grandson from a Rhode Island home says the 4-year-old told her he heard gunshots and his mother was dead.

Police found the bodies of a man and a woman in a Providence home Thursday after responding to reports of shots fired around 3:40 p.m.

Vankham Sonevong later identified the woman as her 24-year-old daughter, Vicky. Sonevong says the man was her daughter’s boyfriend, 28-year-old Steve Soundara. Sonevong says Soundara previously threatened to kill her daughter.

Providence police have not officially identified the bodies. Authorities say both suffered gunshot wounds, and they have recovered a gun believed to have been used in both deaths.

Police say they were not seeking any suspects as of Thursday night.
