Loudoun County murder-suicide under investigation

ALDIE, Va. (WJLA) - Officials from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that occurred late Tuesday night in a home with two children present.

Deputies were called to a townhouse on the 41700 block of Eloquence Square at approximately 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, responding to a 911 call that gunfire had been heard inside the home.

Members of the sheriff's office rapid response unit discovered two dead adults, one man and one woman, with gunshot wounds and a third adult who was transported to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A Sheriff's office spokesman said the shootings were apparently the result of a domestic dispute and that the two fatalities were husband and wife.

Neither of the two children in the home were injured.
