Richmond Hill police investigate possible murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

WTOC has learned new details from neighbors about what may have lead to a possible murder-suicide in Richmond Hill. 

Neighbors say early Monday morning they heard two gun shots in the Main Street subdivision near Ross Way and Bristol Way. One woman told WTOC it was her neighbor, a mother, and that mother's young child that was killed.

Richmond Hill Police have not released any more information. 

Reports Monday afternoon were that the father called police after finding the bodies. 

Neighbors tell WTOC it was a military family and that the wife called her husband who rushed home and found his wife and young son dead. 

Again, police have not confirmed whether this is in fact the case and have said they will not release any more information until Tuesday. 

The Main Street subdivision, neighbors say, is normally very quiet. They tell WTOC they are simply stunned and shocked by what has happened. 

WTOC will continue to follow this story and hopes to have more concrete details from police on Tuesday.
