Police investigate killings near Lawrenceville
Gwinnett County investigators are at a home in the Lawrenceville area where two people were found dead Tuesday morning.
A man and woman were found dead inside a home in the 2000 block of Carriage Way, police said.
Gwinnett Police spokesman Edwin Ritter said that the couple’s 12-year-old son went to a neighbor’s house around 7:30 a.m. and told the neighbor his parents were having problems. The neighbor phoned police, who responded and found the couple dead inside the home, Ritter said.
While there were “obvious signs of trauma,” Ritter said that investigators have not determined how the man and woman died. No one reported hearing gunshots, he said.
“It’s too early to tell at this point whether it’s going to be a murder-suicide,” Ritter said.
The home where the incident occurred is in a neighborhood of middle-income families off Old Peachtree Road, between Braselton Highway and Ga. 20, according to Ritter.
