NORWALK, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Police in Norwalk say a man fatally shot his adult daughter before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life.

Norwalk Police Chief Thomas Kulhawik says the woman’s friends became concerned when she did not show up for work, so went to her apartment late Sunday night to find her dead.

They called police, who engaged in a standoff with the father. Kulhawik says early Monday morning officers heard a single gunshot and found the father dead in the apartment.

No names were immediately released, but the woman is believed to be in her 30s and her father was in his 50s.

Some residents of the neighborhood were evacuated a while some were told to stay in their homes.

The deaths remain under investigation.
