A child walks away from the crime scene Thursday night as police investigate an apparent murder-suicide in southwest Little Rock.

Little Rock police have identified a woman and her live-in boyfriend found dead Thursday night in an apparent murder-suicide.

Officers arrived shortly after 6:30 p.m. to a house in the 8600 block of Edwina Drive, where they located 47-year-old Shirley Kirklin, and her boyfriend, 58-year-old Timothy Williams, according to a report.

Initial findings show Williams shot Kirklin before fatally wounding himself, the city's Police Department said.

When Kirklin's 15-year-old son woke up and went to check on her, he found his mother and Williams dead in the master bedroom, the report states.

The teenager then called family members, who arrived at the home a short time later and notified police.

Kirklin and Williams were pronounced dead at the scene, according to authorities. Their bodies were transported to the state medical examiner’s office for autopsies.

Kiklin's killing is the 17th homicide that Little Rock police have reported this year in Arkansas’ capital city.

This hurts to hear. Truly. I'm praying for this family, especially the 15 year old son.
