BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A landlord checking on an open door at a house in Birmingham found two people dead inside.
A neighbor noticed a door that was ajar at a rental house and notified the homeowner late Tuesday, police said in a statement. That person went to check on the house and found a man and a women dead in a bedroom.
Both had been shot to death earlier in the day, a police spokesman said, but authorities haven't released their names or any possible motive.
News outlets reported that police were investigating the slayings but didn't immediately make any arrests.
