Police believe a man and a woman found dead of gunshot wounds in a southeast Charlotte apartment on Wednesday afternoon died in a murder-suicide.
The apartment is in the 1800 block of Charleston Place, off Monroe Road near McAlpine Creek Park.
Tiara Clark, 29, and Byron Howington, 31, were in a relationship and both lived at the apartment, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.
Patrol officers with CMPD’s Independence Division responded to the apartment at 1:39 p.m. to assist Medic.

Medic pronounced Clark and Howington dead at the scene.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 704-432-8477 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
Evidence at the scene and security measures in place at the apartment led investigators to believe a murder-suicide occurred, although police released no other details. “This is an ongoing, active investigation,” CMPD said in a statement late Wednesday.
