Riverside County Sheriff's Department officers were dispatched to an address in Lyon Road in the Californian city of Rancho Mirage on the afternoon of Sunday November 12 after receiving a report that someone had attempted to take their own life.
Sgt Mike Kelleher reported to local media that they found a man and woman who had both sustained gunshot wounds.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman was taken to a hospital, where she subsequently succumbed to her injuries, the officer said.
“There are no outstanding suspects and there is no threat to the community,” Sgt Kelleher wrote in a statement, declining to release further information.
But a source has told Wigan Today that the man and the woman are from Shevington who were holidaying in America.
We have contacted the Sheriff’s department for further details.
