WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A man and woman were killed on Tuesday in what police say appears to be a murder-suicide.

Police say they were called to an apartment near Australian Avenue and 36th Street for a domestic disturbance and could hear arguing when they arrived.

Officers say as they knocked on the door, they heard two gunshots before an additional two gunshots were fired through the apartment door. Officers say they heard one more gunshot before entering the apartment.

Once inside, officers say they found the body of Sharembria Lewis, 27, with gunshot wounds. Officers also found Calvin Nance, 29, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported the hospital, but later died.

According to police, children were in the home at the time of the shooting, but were not injured.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, but they believe Nance was the shooter.
