2 people found dead in murder-suicide in Centennial home

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Two people were found dead in a Centennial home on Wednesday night in what is being called a murder-suicide, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said.

The Littleton Fire Department received a medical call for help in the 5900 block of South Cherrywood Circle just before 8 p.m. When firefighters arrived, they immediately called the sheriff's office.

Deputies closed Cherrywood Circle between Orchard Road and East Pinewood Avenue, and began searching the backyard and neighborhood. No suspect was being sought.

At one point, some people described as family members showed up at the scene. Deputies kept neighbors away from the area while they conducted the investigation.

On Thursday morning, a sheriff's spokeswoman said it was a murder-suicide.

The identities of the two who died and the circumstances surrounding their deaths will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office.
