The Phoenix Police Department said their officers found two adults deceased inside of a Phoenix-area residence Monday morning. 

This incident happened before 9 a.m. near 22nd Street and Lincoln Drive

According to police, a man went to the house to check on his parents, Ronald and Anna Stafford. He found them both dead.

In the earliest stages of the investigation, police said they found a gunshot wound on one of the victims but the circumstances surrounding the death of the second victim were unknown.

Hours later, Phoenix Police Department spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Howard said the Staffords both "died of apparent gunshot injuries." 

Police said they are not looking for any suspects.  

"While the investigation continues, evidence discovered so far indicates this is likely a homicide / suicide incident," Howard said.
