LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Authorities say they found a child unharmed inside the same home where the child’s presumed parents had just been killed in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police found the couple dead Sunday afternoon after responding to a welfare check in the Hallmark neighborhood.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says the couple were boyfriend and girlfriend. The child was not injured and is believed to be the couple’s. The child is now with family.

Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson said the victims were 27-year-old Brittney L. Green, who suffered a gunshot wound, and 27-year-old Tony Deshawn Brown, who suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
