Two people were found dead inside an apartment on East 18th Street on Wednesday. A women with two gunshot wound was discovered by police; a man with one gunshot wound was also found in the same home.

Police are saying the incident was a suicide, concluding the couple were unmarried but entangled in a romantic relationship which went sour  leading to the double suicide, where the man shot the woman twice before taking his own life.

The female arrived in Paterson only recently from Dominican Republic; authorities say the woman has children back home.
