Police say they are investigating a pair of deaths in northeast Arkansas as a likely murder-suicide.

Officers with the Jonesboro Police Department responded around 9 a.m. to the area of Jessup Drive and North Church Street in reference to a possible homicide and then found two people who appeared to have been fatally shot, according to a news release.

Sgt. Lyle Waterworth said the building where the two people were found is a combination business and residence.

"Preliminary evidence on scene lead the investigators to believe that this is a murder-suicide," Waterworth said. "More information will be available upon completion of the examination by the state crime lab. We will investigate all leads and follow the evidence to bring closure to this case."

Waterworth said the names are still being withheld upon notifications of all family involved.
