LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A rookie police officer and his wife have been found dead at their Long Beach home in what authorities are calling a possible murder-suicide.

A report of possible domestic violence sent Long Beach officers to the condominium shortly before 10 p.m. Monday.

They found 25-year-old Kyle Kurian and his 22-year-old wife, Greta. Both had been shot. Kurian died at the scene and his wife died at a hospital Tuesday morning.

Officers say the couple’s two children — a baby and a toddler — were unharmed.

Kurian was recently hired as a police officer in nearby South Gate.
