Detectives have learned that Norwalk Sheriff Station personnel responded to the location regarding a “Gunshot Victim” call.  Upon their arrival they saw a male and female who had both sustained at least one gunshot wound to the upper torso.

Preliminary investigations reveal the female victim and the suspect, who is described as a male Hispanic adult, were engaged in a previous relationship.  They have two children in common, ranging from the ages of seven and nine.
