GALLATIN, Tenn. - Police tell FOX17 two people were found dead late Wednesday afternoon after someone reported a possible shooting. The bodies of the male and female victims were found in the 3rd floor of building 14 in the Wellington Farms Apartments. What led to this, we're not exactly certain. Police say they arrived just after 4 pm. When they checked the apartment they found two shot to death. Neighbors tell us they often heard arguing inside the apartment and investigators confirm the deceased couple was in a relationship of some sort. Most people are speculating this may have been a murder/suicide since police are not looking for a gunman. Investigators are not confirming that at this time. Police are not releasing the names of the victims, but we expect to learn additional details about this very tragic case Thursday.
