Authorities say the deaths in an apartment in the Town of Campbell appear to be a murder-suicide case.

Neighbor Jack Smizek says he called police after his wife found a bullet hole in the wall of their apartment, which is across the hall from where the bodies were found. Smizek says it's hard to believe the deaths could happen so close to his home.

Police have not identified the deceased.
