A 50-year-old Indian man and a Caucasian woman in her 20’s to 30’s were found dead in a Hilton hotel near the San Diego airport. The cause of death appears to have been a murder-suicide.
On Tuesday, authorities in San Diego responded to a wellness check on a hotel guest at a Hilton hotel around 2:20 PM near the San Diego International Airport after the guest had not checked out. After entering the room authorities discovered two deceased victims of gunshot wounds.
According to CBS 8 a man of Indian descent in his 50’s was found along with an unidentified Caucasian woman believed to be in her 20’s or 30’s. The aforementioned male guest was the registered guest for the room.
Both victims had suffered gunshot wounds and authorities recovered a handgun on the scene.
In a statement made to CBS 8, police Lieutenant Jud Campbell noted, “Based on the initial observations of the scene, it appears the most likely scenario is that the male shot the female and then shot himself.”
San Diego Homicide detectives are investigating the matter.
