A woman and a man died Saturday morning in what appears to be a murder-suicide, Sacramento police said.

The 35-year-old woman and the 49-year-old man were in a long-term relationship, but recently broke up.

Police said the man went to the home he used to share with the woman in the 100 block of Jade Tree Circle around 8:50 a.m. After a short time, he fired multiple shots at the woman and then turned the gun on himself.

Five family members, including two children, were at home during the shooting, police said. No one else was hurt in the incident.

Police continue to investigate the case.
