Montgomery County police responded just after midnight Monday to a suspected murder-suicide that left a man and woman dead from gunshot wounds and three others in critical condition in a Silver Spring, Maryland, house.

When police and fire and rescue units arrived at the 100 block of Amberleigh Drive on a report of multiple victims shot, they found a 57-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman who died at the scene from their injuries, police said.

“A 22-year-old female and two juveniles, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, were transported to local trauma centers and remain in critical condition,” police said in a statement.

Police said they are investigating the “multiple victim shooting as a domestic-related, murder-suicide.”

“They made entry in the home and located five individuals suffering from apparent gunshot wounds,” Police Capt. Paul Starks said, WTOP reported. “We believe that all the violence was contained within the home and we are not looking for a suspect.”
