Story updated at 9:36 a.m.

Simsbury Police are investigating a shooting that left two dead at the Meadows apartments in Simsbury Wednesday night.

At approximately 8:20 p.m., the Simsbury Police Department responded to a domestic call at the Meadows apartment complex on Hopmeadow Street where two bodies were discovered, according to police.

A resident of the Meadows apartments, who did not want to be identified, reported hearing two shots fired before police arrived. A male and a female were found dead at the scene, according to Simsbury Police Chief Peter Ingvertsen.

Kevin Liu, who lives next door to the couple, said they were a young couple with a child.

"They have a very young boy," Liu said. "They were very quiet, they never talked."

Police are not calling the incident a murder-suicide at this point but did confirm that they have no reason to believe there are any other suspects involved.

Simsbury Police were assisted by the Avon Police Department and State Police Major Crimes Unit. Investigators were on the scene until approximately 5 a.m.

Police are working to notify the next of kin.

I hope if you ever have a personal tragedy in your life, people treat you better than you have other's, instead of politicizing it. Sleep well.

I knew this woman - I worked with her. She was a very very hard worker - a loving person/mother. This is very sad.

I agree with Christine Briggs and Shelley. Our thoughts should be with the two families and the little boy.

I live at the meadows. There is a wide array of people here, for various reasons... I'm a single professional female paying my own way... My neighbor just got divorced... he has to pay for his wife to stay in their "big house in simsbury" plus stay close to his kids. My other neighbors are 5 other single females, 2 with kids and a young couple newly married. Please keep your ignorant opinions to yourself... I wouldn't want people to think there was bigots in this quaint small town of ours.

So... I was the last resident before them and I can honestly say that my EX wife and I have never been more angry with each other in our entire relationship than when we lived here. I'm almost positive this place was haunted and I would be interested to hear about who the last residents before us were. Lots of bad juju in the air here... now that I think about it I got divorced while living here. All my friends say that both the boyfriend and the girlfriend were kind, loving people...
