The Erie County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an apparent murder-suicide in the Town of Alden.
Deputies were called to Sandridge Road early Sunday morning. Several children had to be told by 911 dispatchers to leave the house before law enforcement arrived.
After numerous unsuccessful attempts to reach the people inside the home, they entered to find two people dead from apparent gunshot wounds.
The identities of the deceased have not been released pending positive identification and an autopsy report. Authorities did say the two appeared to be in their early- to mid-40s.
