Two people were found dead inside a Fairfield apartment Friday in an apparent murder-suicide, officials said.

Police responded shortly before 10 a.m. to the 20 block of Merlin Drive for a report of people injured during an altercation, Fairfield Police Department officials said Tuesday in a news release.

Police arrived at the scene to find the bodies of 24-year-old Tatiana Maldonado and 33-year-old Goleman David Perez inside the apartment they shared.
